Oakham Foodbank have been delighted with the number of items that have been donated during lockdown and have asked if people can continue to be generous to help them support the 550 households already in receipt of assistance. In addition, it is thought that the number of households to be supported will increase in the next few weeks as the furlough scheme comes to an end and sadly some businesses make redundancies.
We will have our next collection from the Church porch on 15th July and the next one after that will be on 29th July.
Items that are desperately needed are:
- Long-life sponge puddings;
- Smash-type potato; and
- Disposable razors.
We are told that the warehouse is well stocked with baked beans, pasta and cereal so, if you are able to give, please choose items off the list above.
