October’s local business (charity) of the month is…
Stratford upon Avon Foodbank
Their display can now be seen in the front window of our office.
Stratford Foodbank has been able to remain operating during the coronavirus pandemic and this has enabled them to continue to support individuals and families by providing them with emergency supplies.
Throughout the autumn and winter months, it is likely that more and more people will be facing uncertain times meaning that demand for emergency supplies will only rise. Their window display features a variety of the products that the public are able to donate. A full list of what the Foodbank is most looking for can be found in our window and is also linked here (http://stratforduponavon.foodbank.org.uk/…/Harvest-Most…). In particular, they are short of tinned meals such as minced beef, hot dog sausages, curry, chilli, chicken in sauce and pies. Please remember that the Foodbank can only accept donations of non-perishable food items.
The business is now running from the more “COVID-secure” location of Stratford Methodist Church and for residents of Henley-in-Arden and the surrounding villages, John Earle will be acting as collection point. Until mid-November, we will have a collection box in our office so please feel free to pop by and donate. To stay in line with government guidelines, we ask everyone who comes into our office to wear a mask.
