East Suffolk Foodbank is launching a home delivery service in the area this month so that people in hardship can access its emergency food parcels without facing a costly journey to the charity’s drop-in sessions in Lowestoft, Beccles or Halesworth.

The scheme is being led by local churches under the umbrella Christians Together and is being  co-ordinated on their behalf by the Rev Richard Henderson, vicar of Reydon.

A team of 17 volunteers has already signed up to carry out the home deliveries.

The new service will cover Southwold, Reydon, Wangford, South Cove, Blythburgh, Sotherton, Walberswick and Uggeshall.

It will be launched during a special high street food collection event outside the United Reformed Church in Southwold on Saturday, June 21 between 9am and 1pm.
