WMC: July 2018
Many thanks for the continuing support for the foodbank with donations of requested items and money (in a sealed envelope and given to Helen Carter).
This is much appreciated, and at the time of writing the stocks are at a good level for most items, which is good as when the school holidays start it is expected there will be another upsurge of requests.
There is particular concern for families whose children are entitled to free school meals and there are discussions happening as to how these families can be identified and assisted during the summer holidays.
Please watch the weekly notices for more information on this issue. Thank you.
