Can you help and donate some much needed items for a local food bank?
Food poverty is a huge problem in our town, county & country. Over the last ten years or so the cost of living has risen but wages have stagnated, so it is no wonder people are struggling make ends meet. In the UK 8.4 million people live in financial hardship and in Northampton we have an estimated 1 in 5 people in this situation. This is of course being made much much worse by the impact of COVID-19.
So, Northampton South Labour Party and myself are undertaking another food bank appeal. We are looking to generate the biggest donation possible to assist food banks and community groups in Northampton and thus assist local people in need this Christmas.
If you can help, please get in touch, enter your details into the below form and we can arrange collection of your items. Or we can arrange for you to drop them off to us.
The items needed are listed below…thank you in advance of your kind support. 🙌 Gareth
