Things stepped up today as 7 requests for assistance were received. (3 x welfare related, 2 x shopping, 1 x Food Box and 1 x prescription collection and delivery).
Looking back at September, there was definitely a reduction in the number of requests. Statistically, it works out at 3.8 per day with 115 coming in overall. However, the days with peaks of 8 and 9 certainly bugged the trend.
Request for Volunteer Food Bank Managers
You will recall I recently mentioned that with the kind permission of Rev Lorna and the All Saints Group, the Food Bank will remain operational and will continue to serve the community until Christmas. As such I am conducting a trawl for volunteer FB Managers. Unless circumstances change the opening times will remain the same, Mon-Fri 1000-1100hrs. I have the following vacancies:
Fri 9 Oct – 1 day only
W/C 9 Nov
W/C 16 Nov
W/C 23 Nov
W/C 30 Nov
W/C 7 Dec
W/C 14 Dec

If you are interested, available and would like to be involved in supporting the community, I will be pleased to hear from you.
Take care and Stay Safe – Andy
