Give Help

Donate money

Big or small, every gift you give helps transform lives. Regular donations 'fuel' our foodbank and allow us to focus on people in crisis rather than fundraising.

Our foodbank is run by local people for local people – we rely on the community’s support to ensure we can continue to stop people going hungry. For 4.5 years, we were entirely volunteer run, but growth in the number of foodbank distribution centres and our volunteer team led our trustees to employ a small staff team: Foodbank Manager, Signposting Coordinator and (in Novemebr 2021) an Office Coordinator. Our Food Distribution Centre venues are provided free of charge or at reduced rent by local churches. Our major costs going forward will be salaries, rent (two warehouses & two distribution centres), utilities, admin, communications and van maintenance costs.

Will you invest in the future of our foodbank and help us provide much-needed support to people in crisis in our community?

Online Giving Platform

Charities Aid Foundation (CAF): you can donate securely using a debit or credit card, PayPal or your CAF Account if you have one. You have the option to Gift Aid your donation.

REGULAR DONATIONS

Regular donations help us to budget effectively.

Join our 200 Club: This is our preferred route for regular donations*. We are seeking 200 people/organisations who will give a regular donation each month by standing order*. This helps us budget and pay for regular outgoings such as warehouse rent, utility bills and admin costs.

On 31/08/2021, we had 112 individual members, one business and one church.  These donors, along with other regular donors using online giving platforms, donate just over £2,000 per month covering our non-payroll fixed costs. Would you be willing to join them? We would like to increase our regular donations to cover our payroll costs as well as our fixed costs so that we do not have to rely on grants for sustainability.  You can download a poster to advertise our 200 Club.

* Unlike donations by credit/debit cards via online giving sites, where card and transaction fees are charged, using a standing order means we receive 100% of your donation.
