Special week set for Foodbank
8:00am Sunday 14th April 2013 in News
A SCHEME that helps struggling families is celebrating helping more than 1,000 people since it was set up.
The first ever Thurrock Foodbank Week will be held between Monday, April 15, and Sunday, April 21.
In the last nine months, around 1,100 people have been helped by the Foodbank and now organisers are looking for more donations and more volunteers so this work can be continued.
On Monday, a volunteer appreciation evening will be held from 7.30pm to 9pm at the Gateway People’s Centre, in High Street, Stanford-le-Hope.
On Friday, a service of celebration will be held at Socketts Heath Baptist Church at 7.30pm.
A food collection day will also be held at Sainsbury’s in Chafford Hundred on Saturday, April 20, between 8am to 4pm.
