We would like to say to all who donated to the Food Bank A HUGE THANK YOU!
A whopping 86kg was delivered to Starbeck!
And that does not include all the blankets/throws and hot water bottles that were so generously donate for the Christmas appeal, and must be keeping people warm during this cold weather.
Whixley is a relatively small village and each month more and more is taken to the Food Bank, which is so very generous. The delivery to Starbeck is usually made on the last Thursday of every month. It does not matter what size the donation is, all will be gratefully received. Thank you to everyone who donated. Every item given is much needed in the current economic climate and certainly always appreciated by the Food Bank staff and clients. I’m very proud to be part of such a caring community.
For those who are not familiar as to where the donations can be dropped off, just inside the main door of the Village Hall, to the left is the collection box. Please check the Village Hall website as to when the Village Hall is open. The Hall is used so much that there are ample opportunities! There is also a list of products, if you would like any hints.
With grateful thanks and any queries phone Dee Wright 07771 916379 and Corinne Craig 07752 831996
