Support your local Food Bank - All year round

Sadly in our society today are many who are living in poverty and who need support in times of crisis, one of the ways in which this is offered is through Food banks which provide emergency supplies to those in urgent need.

The chaplaincy team have set up a collection point for any staff or students who may wish to support this work. Maybe you could add an item or two to your weekly shopping list and drop by the MLK Centre who have a collection point and will be glad to pass on your contribution to the local food banks for distribution.

To find a list of what items are required please click here, contact James Pritchard on ex 4275. Or for further information about foodbanks click here.
