DENS satellite foodbank in Bovingdon

As the cost of living rises and winter approaches the need for foodbank help is increasing. We have signed an agreement with DENS to set up a satellite foodbank in St Lawrence church and we are looking for volunteers to staff this on two mornings a week, provisionally Mondays and Thursdays, between 10am and 12 noon. If you’d like to find out more please talk to Dena Tyler Full training will be given.  We are resuming our collection of food for DENS in church and will also need help taking food collections down to DENS and replenishing our stock of food parcels as and when needed.
