Ongoing contributions to the West Northumberland Food Bank of non-perishable food particularly cartons of long life milk, fruit juice, flavoured packs of noodles, jams & tinned meat, fish, fruit and vegetables continue to be welcomed as the need for food parcels is still necessary. The number of people seeking help has risen by 37% in the past year. Sue Applegarth will be happy to accept either food or alternately monetary donations. There is a basket in the Church Hall for any contributions. Please note that unfortunately the food bank is unable distribute food that is outside its sell by date.
