Foodbank Matters


Su and George Reid take donations from Hutton Rudby and Swainby to the Food Bank warehouse in Middlesbrough.  As always, donations are very gratefully received!

Just now the Food Bank especially needs:  jam; tinned fruit; tinned carrots; tinned meat including ham; instant mashed potatoes in packets.  Other non-perishable food is also welcome.  Toiletries, and sanitary products for babies and women, are also welcome.

Presently they do not need: more biscuits, breakfast cereals, porridge, pasta, peas and beans.

It is important that all donated food is non-perishable as it is stored until needed, and then given to people who often have no access to a fridge!

Many thanks to all of you who donate to or help Middlesbrough Foodbank!

A Message from John Hinman, Trustee, ‘Together Middlesbrough and Cleveland’ (Feast of Fun)

Many congratulations for the amazing support we received from the people of Hutton Rudby.  You raised more than £1000 for vital work for children suffering from holiday hunger in Middlesbrough.  Well done everyone! And special thanks to Su Reid and her team!

All good wishes, John Hinman
