Support us

Lots of people ask how they could support the Foodbank beyond regular donations so here's some ideas for how you can help:

Could you...

  • host a dinner party and ask your guests to donate or bring a tin?
  • take part in a local fundraiser, sponsored event?
  • have a neighbourhood collection and put a box for donations on your doorstep?
  • take your own coffee to work for a week and donate the savings?

Contact us for more ideas and we can supply a range of branded posters and marketing materials.
