Ways to support us

As you know church donations account for approximately 36% of the food donated to us.  We would certainly struggle to feed our clients without your donations.  Over the last three years our donor churches have proved very loyal.  When we started foodbank we did wonder whether contributions would tail off as time went on but that has not been the case, in fact new church donors have started collecting.

 

There are other ways to support us in addition to providing food.  Whilst all the food is donated we do have other expenses we have to cover, transport costs, administration and printing, postage, warehouse costs and, of course, we now have to pay rent on our warehouse.  It currently costs us something over £2,500 per month to cover these expenses.  The foodbank actively seeks as much grant aid as we can get but in many cases grants have provisions which means we have to provide some of the money from our own resources.

 

About 2½ years ago we set up a Supporters’ Group to enable people who wanted to give us financial support (in addition to or instead of food donations) to help us on a regular basis.  We have not really promoted this widely but feel that now is the right time to make others aware of the group.
