We held a Foodbank drop-in   

Following the success of our first session the previous week, we decided to host a second session for individuals who were not able to get a parcel the first time. Vulnerable individuals and families were able to come and collect fresh food (meat, bread, vegetables, fruits), tinned food, and toiletries (shower gel, hair care products, period packs, and oral hygiene packs). A massive thanks to our volunteers and coordinators for the smooth delivery of the session. We also would like to extend our thanks to the BAYC centre for letting us host this session in a friendly and safe environment. If you would like to participate in the next session or to refer somebody, please give us a call.
