Donations still coming in
- Hits: 539
Today Lynn and Andrew from our office had the pleasure of dropping off a number of large boxes to the 'Grocery Store' at the Bridge Community Church in West Road, Bury St. Edmunds.
This facility is far more than a typical food bank. Members pay a small fee to join the scheme and can then buy donated items at greatly reduced prices. This 'hand up' rather than 'hand out' also helps with ideas of how to make cheap nutritional meals and can be a gateway to other services.
Whilst we are only collecting non perishable food items, the grocery store has toiletries, frozen items, fresh bread and baby goods.
We are still taking donations at our offices at 7 Langton Place, up to the 21st December. Needless to say, The Bridge Community Church operate throughout the year and will always be grateful of any support you can offer.
