Next time you are food shopping why not buy one and give one free!
Adastral Park has been supporting Families in Need (FIND) since 2012.
The collection point, open to people based at Adastral only and not for general public donations, is located outside WH Smiths in the Hub. A MyDonate page is also now available – just click here to donate. (We shall assume all donations are eligible for Gift Aid unless otherwise stated).
You can donate non-perishable food or basic toiletry items but the charity are particularly interested in items on the shopping list below. So next time you’re picking up some groceries, why not buy a few extra items or donate your BOGOF tins to someone who really needs it.
FIND is a Christian based registered charity providing emergency assistance to families or individuals affected by poverty or dispossession in Ipswich and the surrounding area. The charity was established over 22 years ago by Maureen Reynel, MBE, and is run by a small group of dedicated volunteers.
“Three teenage boys came home with their father to discover their possessions on the street – their mother had thrown them out. They were housed in a hostel but until the benefit situation was sorted out, they had no money – so FIND provided them with food parcels and basic toiletries.”
You can help in several ways:
- get in to the habit of a regular donation to our food bank scheme
- organise a mobile foodbank collection at a team meeting
- volunteer to help us manage the scheme on site, including delivery of our items to the find warehouse in east Ipswich
- donate money which can be converted in to food
If you can help, please contact Ali Howard.
