Local foodbank donation target

The Tin in the Bin Network has set itself a target to reach 18 tonnes of foodbank donations by the end of August.

“We’re currently at around 13 tonnes, but we are worried as donations tend to drop in the summer. Cash donations have been incredible; we’ve raised over £5,500 and have been able to buy things that Redbridge Foodbank don’t get much of – canned meat, washing powder and shower gel, for example,” said James Paterson. Collection points are located at homes across the area.
