Team News 5th August

Posted on by Tania Birtwistle

Sole Bay FOODBANK is urgently in need of donations to enable 3 day supply Food Parcels to be distributed to people in an immediate Crisis Situation. This can arise from a number of reasons:- e.g. illness, redundancy, homelessness,child tax credit delays etc.. And particularly at this time during the holiday period – some families which normally rely on school meals are unable to find the means to provide sufficient food for their children. There is currently a particular shortage of UHT milk, tinned  fruit, and tinned rice pudding. However any item on the ‘Shopping List’ is always welcome, but at the moment baked beans and sugar are not needed. Jan & John Collins [Sole Bay Co-ordinators] 01502 725731 . Thank you for all you already give.
