The Next Collection Date

First, a huge thank you to everyone who has given items for the food bank collection in the church porch.  David and Anne Harvey kindly delivered the items earlier this week.  In future, Rutland County Council working with Voluntary Action Rutland will collect the items to support social distancing and limit journeys to the Food Bank.  They have supplied us with two boxes to use – they can be found on the left hand side of the church porch: they are smaller than our usual collection box but will be easier for them to collect, so please use the smaller boxes first.  We are waiting for confirmation of the next collection date but understand that it might be Wednesday, 20th May.

Items requested include:
Tinned carrots, Tinned potatoes, Smash, Jams/spreads (not homemade), Sponge puddings, Small bags of sugar (500g), Tins of meat, Tinned meat pies, Tins of custard, Full cream UHT milk, Toilet rolls, UHT juice, Small jars of coffee, Children’s toothbrushes and toothpaste.

If you are unable to access the collection point and would like someone to collect an item from you please contact me ( or 823910).  Alternatively, if you would like to donate money, you can pay direct by bank transfer to:

Every donation makes a difference, so please continue to donate to help meet the increasing demands being made on the Foodbank.
