Easter Appeal Underway

Every Easter we give food and Easter eggs to about 1000 families to help with the costs of the holidays.

Holidays are an expensive time of year for low income families as parents need to put more food on the table and fund day time activities at the same time often as working reduced hours.

Referrals to food bank schemes peak during the holidays and we saw an increase in requests for help with food at Christmas.

We want to help young families as much as we can by giving them a shopping bag full of useful cupboard staples.

You can find a list of donated goods requested to publicise to friends and colleagues here.

Please make sure food has a best before date of at least May 2015.

Download a poster here to publicise our Appeal in your office, church or school.

Donations will be accepted between Tuesday 17 Feb and Friday 27 March
