Coronavirus Update

19th March 2020

We are currently operating ” as usual” however due to the Government Advice on self-isolation for those over 70 years we inevitably have seen a big impact on our volunteer numbers so please bear with us. We must also ask all our volunteers in this age group ( well or not!) to not attend Foodbank at present. We have also seen restrictions on our access to a number of the buildings we use for distribution of food parcels. The situation is very fluid and does change from day to day however at present we do expect to continue distributing food parcels at all our usual sites and times. We will not be serving hot drinks etc and it may be that parcels will be handed out from our van rather than inside the building. IF YOU ARE SYMPTOMATIC PLEASE DO NOT COME TO OUR DISTRIBUTION SITES but get someone else to collect the food parcel. We would welcome donations of UHT Milk; tinned meat; tinned fruit; pasta / rice; coffee.
