In2Out's Big Give Christmas Challenge

Get ready! Campaign starts on Tuesday, November 28s, until 5-Dec

In2Out helps young people make a new start when they leave prison. These youngsters are full of potential and so much more than the offences they have committed. With the consistent support of an In2Out mentor they can shape positive, stable lifestyles for themselves, full of aspiration and hope.

Your donation to our A new start for young people leaving prison campaign will help In2Out to provide more mentoring and practical support to our participants.

Donations to In2Out are welcome at any time, but if you give via our online campaign from 12noon on 28th November to 5th December your donation will be doubled for as long as matching funds last.

Foodbank wish list, September

Foodbank Appeal

The Wetherby & District Foodbank has been experiencing unprecedented need for almost a year and this has been coupled with a relative decline in donations. Our stocks of food and hygiene essentials are very depleted.

Urgent needs can be seen in the image on the left (click to enlarge).

The Food Bank are looking for volunteers to help with their Food Drive at Tesco, Clifton Moor, from Thursday 30-Nov to Saturday 2-Dec.

If anyone can offer a couple of hours on any of these days, please contact Jenny Firth (jenny@wetherbyanddistrict.foodbank.org.uk).

To find out how you can donate to the Foodbank, click here, or go to Wetherby & District Foodbank.
