UPDATE TO DUNSTABLE FOOD BANK APPEAL:
DUNSTABLE FOODBANK FACES RISK OF CLOSURE. PLEASE HELP. SEE MORE HERE
AN APPEAL FROM DUNSTABLE FOODBANK:
DUNSTABLE FOODBANK IS GETTING BUSIER. There is an increasing need for a foodbank
iin Dunstable and the surrounding villages - we supply clients who have LU5 and LU6 postcodes. We have seen an 18% increase in food distributed since this time last year. We moved into our new warehouse in Leighton Buzzard in January. We were unable to find free or subsidised accomodation so this is a commercial warehouse. We will need to raise over £15,000 annually to pay for it. All our income goes on supporting our work and buying food. None of our volunteers are paid. We need more help to maintain our service:
if you can help with money or time, please contact Mike Pittam at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07874 200056
POSTMAN BRIAN HAS LEFT STUDHAM
Postman Brian has left his Studham round. Known and loved by most of Studham, Brian has finally been transferred to Dunstable. Read Brian's goodbye thoughts here.
