Firstly, we would like to thank all those local people who so generously support the food bank. Without your regular donations, we wouldn’t be able to continue to help vulnerable families in our community.
This year, we have been busier than ever, having already given out over 2 metric tonnes of food from our base at St. Peters Church. This has meant that with the busy summer holiday period fast approaching our stocks of food items are significantly lower than usual for the time of year. During the school summer holidays, when school meals are not available, we provide weekly food parcels to a number of families struggling to make ends meet. This means we give out a large amount of food during this period.
We would like to make an appeal to the folk of Yaxley and the surrounding villages. Would you consider placing a few items in one of the collecting baskets around the locality?
We are particularly short of the following items:
Tinned meat and fish
Long life milk
Long life custard
Tinned rice pudding
Our baskets are in the following locations:
Yaxley Lakeside Surgery
William de Yaxley School
Yaxley Infants School
Farcet Primary School
St Peters Church
St Mary Magdalene Church Stilton
Thanking you all again for your continuing support.
St. Peter’s Church
