Supporting Sherwood Forest Foodbank this Christmas
From 1 December 2015, we’ll be supporting Sherwood Forest Foodbank collecting a range of food items from our Mansfield branch and head office.
The Sherwood Forest Foodbank covers the Mansfield area and uses the donations they receive to provide 3 days of emergency food to vulnerable individuals or families.
Included on the Sherwood Forest Foodbank shopping list are the following items:
- Powdered or UHT milk
- Tinned fruit and vegetables
- Tinned meat/fish
- Rice and/or pasta
- Pasta sauces
- Fruit juice (carton)
- Biscuits or snack bar
Please note, that items out of date or already opened will unfortunately not be accepted due to health and safety issues. Perishable items are also not allowed.
To donate, come into our Mansfield branch during opening hours before 5pm Wednesday 22 December 2015 and place your donation in the collection box. You do not need to be a member or a customer of ours to get involved and we welcome all donations.
Alternatively, you can also donate directly to Sherwood Forest Foodbank who are open Mondays and Thursday from 1.30pm to 4pm at The Stable Centre, Church Street, Mansfield Woodhouse, Notts NG19 9JY.
Staff will be working as volunteers at the foodbank on the afternoon of Thursday 17 December helping to put food parcels together.
