"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.
Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
not looking to your own interests
but each of you to the interests of the others."
Phillipians 2:3-4

 

 

 

 

 

 

COVID19 is having a significant impact on Foodbanks and their ability to support those in need.

You will also probably have seen news items saying demand for their support is increasing rapidly and as we start a new month the impact for many of lost or reduced income is going to mean many more people need help.

Many people are regular supporters of the food bank through regular donations but the impact of isolation is also reducing our opportunity to give needed items. So how can we help?

1. If you are still shopping please give generously and check their website for what is needed most. As I write this they particularly need Tinned Tomatoes and Long Life Fruit Juice

2. If you are at home why not make a financial donation as a gift this Easter to support those in need today?

or if you are able to do so consider setting up a regular gift.

3. If you are under 70 you can volunteer to help them in more practical ways as a number of volunteers have had to temporarily withdraw due to Self Isolation.

Follow this link to their website for more information:

 

Cirencester Food Bank relies on food donations to feed local people in crisis.

If you would like to donate please bring: in date non-perishable food and place it in the box provided.
