Supporting Thame Foodbank

As we move further into this very unpredictable year, nobody can be sure what surprise is around the corner or when things will start to improve, just this week the economy has entered into a recission, which nobody is 100% sure when it will end.

The only certainty is that times are hard, people all over the country are struggling with basic securities, such as food and warmth. These are things that many will take for granted, but some of our neighbours may be encountering. There isn't a magic wand to fix all of society’s problems, but there is somethings we can do as a community.

Over the last few weeks, both the Parochial Church Council and our Parish Council have been discussing setting up a collection point for the Thame foodbank to help collect donations from our community and pass them onto the team at Thame foodbank.

We would like to start a monthly collection in the Church, starting on Saturday 19th November, where a collection table will be laid out and residents can leave donations that will be driven to Thame the following week.

It is hoped that by reminding people in the week leading up to the collection date, we can help pass on which items are urgently required, so people can add these to their online or regular shopping lists, then bring them to the Church on the weekend.

The types of items needed are: breakfast cereal, soup, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, baked beans, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, instant mash, UHT milk, tea, coffee, sugar, tinned dessert and biscuits.

Thame foodbank:

Contact numbers: 0300 201 0212 (Calls will be charged at the standard national rate) or 07541 299010 - 10:00am until 2:00pm daily.
