Get involved

There are lots of different ways to get involved.


Donate money

We know that not everyone has the time to volunteer with us or organise a food collection. You can help us support local people in crisis by donating money today.

Donate food

We often need donations of non-perishable foods and toiletries. From a few cans to an office food collection, we appreciate every donation and it goes a long way to make a difference.
Please be sure to check the list below to see what we need most at the moment..

Make a donation

Your support in numbers

Monthly donation

A gift of £50 would help cover the cost of a session with a member of the Advice & Support service team, as they help resolve the immediate crisis and work with people to put longer term solutions in place.

Volunteering hours

Each week we require over 74 volunteer hours to help collect, sort and distribute food. Without this level of support, the foodbank would not be able to meet the growing needs of the community.


Out of every £1 donated

For every pound you donate, 75p goes straight towards running our Foodbank and Advice & Support projects.

“I like meeting claimants and getting stuck into their issues. It’s the bit of the job where you feel it’s immediately worthwhile.”
