Hosting a food collection point

  • The food bank can provide:-
    • Box/wheelie bin
    • Advertising materials
    • Will include your location on our website
    • Will collect the donated stock on a regular basis
    • Keep you updated on any urgent food requests
    • Let you know how many people we have fed
  • Please contact the food bank phone to discuss telephone 07596 690 902

Volunteering opportunities   Although we have sufficient volunteers at the present moment , do get in touch if youn are interested in helping and we will get back in touch if we need more help. 

  • Volunteers are sometimes required at The Sands Methodist Church for the donation sessions. This hour or half hour commitment would see you join a rota, so just one hour a month would be helpful.
  • If you are interested please contact the food bank telephone on 07596 690 902
  • All support through prayer for the work of the food bank would be appreciated.
  • Any volunteer who is recruited to a role which gives access to confidential information has to go through an interview process as per the Methodist Church’s, safe recruitment procedures.

Financial donations

  • Big or small, every gift you give helps transform lives.
  • Our food bank is run by local people for local people – we rely on the community’s support to ensure we can continue to stop people going hungry. Can you invest in the future of our project and help us provide much-needed support to people in crisis in our community?
