Closing dates over Christmas

Hi Everyone, just letting you know that the Food Bank will be closed from the 25th of December except for emergency cases on Thursday 28th December (refer as normal or phone if unable to find a referrer) and re-opening on Tuesday the 2nd January.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! ⛄️🎅🎄

Friary Christmas Tree Competition Update

Hi Everyone, you may have noticed that our Friary Christmas Competition Tree has been changing! 😀 We have been busy elves removing baubles (putting ‘Donated’ gift tags in their stead) and taking them down to our food bank sessions to gift to clients.

Between the 1st and 8th of December we provided 53 parcels, we fed 86 adults and 63 children. This was our quietest week so we are expecting things to get much busier! We’ve been providing a bauble for everyone in each client household so you can see why our tree had to be packed to the brim at the start!

If you haven’t popped down to see it yet, the Trees are located on the 2nd floor of the Friary on the side nearest North Street. Remember to vote for your favourite as the Charity Tree with the most votes will win £1000!! 🎄

Volunteer Drivers Needed!

Hi Everyone, we are currently looking for more volunteer drivers to help deliver food parcels to our clients on Tuesdays (1 – 3pm) and Fridays (4:30 – 6:30 pm). If you are interested in this role we would love to hear from you 😀

Please email volunteers@ngfoodbank.co.uk for further information.
