Metcalf: Hope to help as many as we can
Suzie Metcalf Foodbank Co-ordinator said,

“In these difficult times it is vital that people in our community facing difficulties can access food and household items at convenient times. By opening on Saturday mornings and offering deliveries we hope to help as many as we can.

“The support from residents and businesses in our town has been incredible and we would like to thank those who have made donations of food and cash – special thanks to Phoebe and Page and the staff at Golden Sands who collected their tips and purchased food to donate to the Foodbank.

“Thanks again to the congregation at St Catherine’s Church, The Crab and Lobster and to Ace Waste.

Also huge thanks to our anonymous donor for a further £1,000 donation. A shout out too for Alex Walsh and his incredible Hill Run and fundraising for the Foodbank.”
