We currently pre-pack food items per person, and offer a small choice of extra hygiene/ cleaning products and small bags of fresh fruit & veg. For children, there are a few extra items. Altogether, the value of the bag for a family with children is around £15 – not nearly enough for a whole week, just a top up for a few days when there is nothing else left in the cupboard. We are reluctant to reduce this offer any further, and we are reluctant to turn people away, so we must continue our fundraising.

Virgin Money Giving is closing at the end of November and will no longer be accepting donations. We have contacted all our regular donors to let them know that we will be using CAF Donate as our donations platform for regular giving and one-off donations. Please click on the Donate Button below which will take you to our CAF Donate page.

Thank you to all of our donors – your support enables us to continue our work.

Monthly direct debit and one-off donations can also be made year round via our Local Giving page. This site will allow you to set up your own fundraising appeal page, directly linking your pledges to our account.

Direct bank transfers are also possible, please email for details.
