FOOD BANK CRISIS and the CORONA PANDEMIC
Thank you for your support for the Food Bank. They are desperate for carbohydrates and the rice and pasta are ideal. Sadly many venues that allow you to leave foodstuffs for collection are closed and with the continuing pressure on shops there appear to be fewer practical ways to collect goods for the food bank. This is placing those in great need in a very serious position and we want to try to help to alleviate if we can. We continue to propose that people who are interested can, should they wish, make financial contributions to us which we will convert into goods from Traidcraft and deliver weekly to the Foodbank locally in Amersham. Should you feel able to contribute, do email me. Because of the difficulty in making payments in person we would prefer that people use one of the following methods of contribution/payment.
By bank transfer to our account using the reference “FoodBankDonation”, details will be provided when you contact us.
By Cheque made payable to Traidcraft Plc and sent to Margaret Dykes, 4, Roughwood Fields, Roughwood Lane, Chalfont St Giles HP8 4AA
Thank you. Margaret and Bill Dykes
