Since May we have been collecting for the Food Bank run from the Castle Donington Children’s Centre.

The food collection will run this throughout the year and parishioners can donate non-perishable food items in a basket left in the church porch. When the basket is full, the contents are collected and taken to the Food Bank so that it can be issued to families in financial crisis.

Crises arise as a result of a sudden change of circumstances such as redundancy, family breakdown or a delay or change to benefits.

There is rarely anything but a short term need for food bank items with any one family.
