You can make a financial donation to the pantry here;
In order for the Community Pantry to work we rely on donations from generous supporters. We are keen to accept tins, pasta, rice, cereals and any other longer life goods. Please also consider household goods like washing powder/ liquid, washing up liquid, deodorant, toilet paper, shower gel, shaving gel, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, tooth paste, hand wipes. Other useful products like sanitary towels and tampons, nappies, baby wipes and baby food are also invaluable.
In addition we call out to anybody who maintains an allotment – Do you have any excess fruit and/or vegetables that you can donate to the Pantry? All donations can be dropped to our Unit at Hesters Way Community Resource Centre or at the main reception if the unit is closed.
Help fund raise
We will be running campaigns to promote donations at specific times of the year and especially at Christmas and during the school holidays. Marketing our plans across social media and through local networks are important to maintain supply of food at these busy times.
We can accept financial donations via the Donr fundraising platform
If your organisation would like to help with volunteer support, drivers to deliver to vulnerable members or to make financial donations we’d be happy to hear from you!
How to volunteer
We will be recruiting for volunteers to help with the pantry. Jobs will include helping stack the shelves, stock checks, meeting and greeting members and general shop duties.
