Food Donations

We still need donations of food, toiletries and household products for us to distribute to people in need.

There is a list of the things we need most at the bottom of this page. We cannot accept donations of clothing, toys, or any other items. 

You can bring donations between 10am-4pm Monday-Friday. Please do not leave any donations outside the Centre when we are closed.

We can make best use of your donations if you bear in mind the following:

  • We prefer products that are on the list below – if you’ve got anything else please call to check first
  • Products within their use-by and best-before dates
  • Products that are unopened and in unused packets
  • Small packets, instead of large ones
  • A few different products instead of a few packets of the same thing
  • Toiletries (soap, shampoo etc) should be designed for everyone i.e. not specifically for men or women

Thank you for your generous donations. 

We update this page regularly, so please check in to see what we need, or get automatic email updates by going to our homepage and entering your email address in the “Subscribe” box.

If you’d like to give money, please go to our ‘Donate’ page or pop into the Centre.
