Thank you to everyone who has already donated to the new food bank collection point at Hudson House. For those not familiar with the building, the collection boxes are on the window in the Library (on your left as you come in the front door). Do help if you can.
Donations are going to The Storehouse food bank in Richmond run by the Influence Church. Please note that because of the time required to transport, sort and pack food parcels, the food bank can only accept long-life items such as:
Long Life dry goods like packets of Pasta, rice, cereal, biscuits etc
Long life food in jars, like jars of jam, Pasta sauce etc
If you know someone who needs help from the foodbank it may be helpful to know that the Storehouse is open to new enquiries on Thursday afternoons between 4.00pm and 6.00pm and that no proof of need is required for a first visit. The food bank is located in the Influence Church building, which is the old cinema opposite the cricket ground (DL10 4AS). If transport is a problem, you can always contact Reeth and District Community Transport at Hudson House on 01748 884485 (choose option 3 for RDCT). You can find out more about the Food Bank at (See website) or if you don’t have access to the internet, by ringing the church office on 01748 823161
