Wetherby & District Foodbank - URGENT appeal

Donations are currently at the LOWEST we've seen for several years, and we are close to running out of just about every item in our warehouse.

We URGENTLY need donations so if you are able to donate even a single item from the list below, we would be very grateful.

List of items urgently needed for Food Bank

Community Prayers

9:00am Wednesday July 3, at Margins Bookshop, Church Street
and the first Wednesday of every month

Everyone is invited to join us in prayer for about half an hour to lift up to the Lord our community and its people, churches, businesses, activities, and no doubt we shall be praying for other things that are on our hearts, too.

Do come along if you can... everyone is welcome.

Wetherby & District Foodbank
Help required

The Foodbank is looking for volunteers for the following initiatives:

Community Cafe, Tadcaster

The new Community Café in Tadcaster has now been running for a month, from 10:30—12 on Wednesday mornings.

The Café is getting busier each week, and more help is needed 'front of house' to welcome visitors, make drinks and offer a snack and a chat. Volunteers wouldn't be alone and you wouldn't need to commit to more than once a month if you didn't want to.

Morrisons Collection

Last year we collected over 1300 Kg of donations over our three days at Morrisons. It was a valuable source of food and other items that we desperately needed.

This year the dates are Thursday-Saturday 4-6th July.

Offers for a two-hour stint over the three day period will be gratefully received.

Charity Stall Thursday 25th July, 9am—3pm

We are holding a Charity Stall at Wetherby Market with a tombola. The tombola will be set up for the day with prizes spread so we can last. If anybody had an hour or two that day to help out that would be great>

The stall is on the first Thursday of the school summer holidays and will hopefully signpost families and others to come to the Foodbank if they're struggling.

If you can help at any (or all!) of these events, please call 07840 455725 or email us at info@wetherbyanddistrict.foodbank.org.uk.
