Food Bank collection point at Stirchley

Thanks to our hard working parish clerk, we now have a Food Bank collection point in the parish council offices.

I asked the clerk to make enquiries about having a collection point at the Sambrook Centre (also home to Stirchley library) at our last parish council meeting and the collection box was delivered a week or so ago.

There is a shopping list on the Telford Crisis Network website giving examples of things you might like to donate to the food bank or if you'd rather donate cash they can increase your donation by 2,000% via match funding from Shropshire Tutor and a warehousing company that will deliver food to the food bank for just 10% of its value.

If you are in need of the services of the food bank yourself then please get in touch (I'm a trusted referrer) and I'll talk you through the referral process.
