Please don’t forget that St Mary’s is collecting for the Wandsworth Foodbank on an ongoing basis. Donations can be left in the large green box at the back of church. Items currently needed include tinned vegetables, sugar, tinned fruit, long life fruit juice and basic toiletries such as deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste and nappies. A comprehensive list can be found on the Wandsworth Foodbank’s website : http://wandsworth.foodbank.org.uk.
Our donations are taken to St Mark’s Church in a Battersea Rise, which is one a number of distribution centres in the borough.
Last year Wandsworth foodbank helped over 3250 needy people – providing them with three day’s worth of food and basic necessities. All those receiving donations need to have been issued with a foodbank voucher given by care professionals.
