From Grace foodbank:

"As you will be aware the Foodbanks in this country have been busier than ever this year. The Grace Foodbank has been able to do some remarkable things throughout the last 12 months and it is all because of the generosity of the people of this area and our churches who have made outstanding contributions of food and monetary gifts. Please continue to support the Foodbank and a huge thank you for all that you have done this far".

The foodbank is currently short of:

  • Plain white rice

  • Instant mashed potato

  • UHT milk (full fat or semi-skimmed)

  • Bottles of squash

  • Shampoo (ideally gender neutral)

  • Cleaning sprays

  • Washing up liquid

  • Laundry tablets (ideally not liquitabs)

They have plenty of baked beans but other donations across the range are welcome.

Please leave gifts for the Foodbank in the the boxes at the back of our two churches, St John's Abbeydale and Holy Trinity Millhouses.  Any contributions will be delivered to the Foodbank every Thursday.

Alternatively you can help with this vital work by making cash payments to the Grace Foodbank direct.
