Can You Help The Food Banks?

Gloves & Masks PPECan You Help The Food Banks

Are you off work during the shutdown?  Do you use basic PPE gloves & mask when you work?  If so you might be able to help a local food bank.

Some food banks are getting through as many as 50 sets a day; as you will be well aware, they are very hard to get hold of right now thanks to COVID-19!  The food banks need them to protect their volunteers and their customers who are often very vulnerable.

If you have a supply you are not likely to be using any time soon, please consider donating some.  We are thinking that those who work in personal services such as beauticians, nail technicians etc… could help – your donation would be very warmly received.  Find your nearest foodbank on the Trussell Trust website.
