Photo’s of our store room on 14th September and they are still empty.
Please note we work differently from The Trussell Trust, we don’t have a counter for people to choose what they want and collect other products, such as toothpaste or brushes. By sending us hygiene goods you are wasting time and your money as we can’t use these items.
If you have something else you wish to give, please contact us first as we may not be able to use it and it is very time-consuming to dispose of items that we cannot use. Thank you for your co-operation.
But please note, we definitely cannot use:
Toothpaste, shower gel, toothbrushes, make-up, Sanitary products.
Bread or short date cake
No Beer or Wine or fruit in alcohol
Anything that needs a fridge
Anything home-made (including jam or pickle)
Anything that is out of date or damaged
(Please check the date on the base of tins)
Any Dried lentils and beans
