In today’s society, it’s difficult to imagine people in our community going hungry. However the reality is that in recent years people have or are getting plunged into financial crises, forcing them to go short of food to enable them to pay for other essentials and sometimes to feed their children in their place.
In response, we run a food bank to help on Wednesdays and Thursdays in the Church Hall between 1:00 and 3:00PM. When people come to collect their food, we serve refreshments and the gathering that takes place leads to opportunities for mutual help.
If you have found yourself in this position, please call Pauline Firman (Co-ordinator) on 01428 714095 or Eileen Matthews on 07731 535967, who can advise on the help available.
If you are in a position to donate food or financial support, we would be most grateful. Please call Pauline or bring your donation to Chaparral, Downsview Road, Headley Down, GU35 8JH.
The payee for any donations by cheque is St Francis Community Church who run the Food Bank. If you would like to donate by bank transfer please email Allan our Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org for details, or ask Pauline.
