We would like to extend a massive and heartfelt thank you to everyone who’s donated to or asked about the Community Pantry. We have been absolutely overwhelmed by your generosity in just the first week of its existence.
The kindness you have shown in donating food and money for the project means we’ve already built up a fantastic store which will allow us to provide meal bags for families in desperate need for at least the next few weeks.
How can I continue to support the project?
Thanks to your incredible support so far, we don’t really need much more food at the moment.
However, what we need right now is tinned vegan and vegetarian meals: things like stews, soups, chillis and curries.
We also need to find ways to encourage those in need to take a meal bag. If you know of anyone who needs support, please encourage them to make use of the Pantry.
Where do I take my donation?
You can leave your donations in the Presbytery, in the parcel box outside the Presbytery door or direct to Mgr Massey.
Please avoid leaving donations next to the Pantry itself or in the church.
Please note that we’re unable to accept any fresh food as we can’t store it safely. Dried, tinned or long-life packets of food are welcome, particularly vegan and vegetarian items.
How else can I show my support?
We have set up a WhatsApp group for anyone who would like to be kept up to date with the Community Pantry and who would like to donate goods, money or time to the cause.
If you would like to keep in touch in this way, message Jenny Glester on 07970 599836 with your name and she will add you to the group.
For those not on the WhatsApp group, we will keep messages flowing in the Newsletter.
With sincere thanks for your support,
Jenny, Becky and Amy
