Blaxhall Community Foodbank expands

Every week there are more stories in the press about increased need for and use of foodbanks.

Blaxhall continues to play a part in the East Suffolk Foodbank. A food donation collection point has been in existence in St Peter's Church from the beginning several months ago and now a second collection point has been added, in the YHA Hostel. The Church is open every day during hours of daylight and the YHA Hostel is open from 8.00 until 10.00hrs and also from 17.00hrs each day. Regular deliveries of donations from Blaxhall are being taken to the East Suffolk collection centre and we know that packs of supplies have been delivered to those in need in the local area.

All donations are gratefully received. Pease try to ensure that donations of tinned and packaged foods have a relatively long shelf life. 'Shopping lists' of preferred items are available at each collection point in Blaxhall. Thank you in anticipation of your support of this venture to assist those in need.
