Lambeth and Wandsworth Foodbanks

Postby evali » Mon Nov 16, 2020 8:54 pm

I need your help, and I know you love helping the community.  

With everything that's going on, its so easy to complain and moan but there is always someone less fortunate. So lets focus on the positive we can do or bring.

This lockdown is going to be hard again but for some in our community its going to be really tough. For some, its the next meal they are worried about. For some, their children won't be receiving a gift this Christmas.

I started raising donations for Lambeth and Wandsworth Foodbanks around 6 weeks ago.  Currently all food banks are closed due to the pandemic.  Lambeth and Wandsworth are offering a delivery service and are struggling to meet the needs of the 61% rise (figure taken before this current lockdown) in demands for food parcels, this equates to 6 parcels every minute. 7 out of 10 of these parcels are being given to people who have never had to use a foodbank before.

Lets change this and show our community how much we really care,

Please bring any food/toy donations to the Holy Spirit Church on Narbonne Avenue between 10:00 and 16:00 on Saturday 5th December.

What would also be absolutely incredible is if you could share the attached poster to friends and neighbours so we can make this Christmas just a little more special for the less fortunate in our community.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Kind regards

Lisa:  I'll certainly drop off some (tinned) food.  But, as for toys, if you happen to know, are there any particular types of toys that are more in demand than others?
