COMMUNITY HARVEST FESTIVAL
We need your help South Tyneside! We’re in unprecedented times – we’ve seen a 310% increase in demand at our food bank over the last 6 months with over 8,000 local people helped so far
Big shout out to West Boldon Post Office – who are supporting our Harvest Festival Appeal this week – we really appreciate your support! They ordered 100 extra Chronicles to sell and donate the full cover price of everyone sold to the food bank.
Big thanks to Mark, James and the team at Morrisons South Shields for their contribution of lots of lovely fresh 🍌and 🍆 to our Harvest Appeal 🍁🌽🚜 It’s been a busy old week (as usual) at the food bank. Our amazing volunteers are working their little socks off! Sadly, as fast as donations are coming in, they’re flying straight off the shelves due to the unprecedented times. Pls help us plug the gaps by donating food or financially ❤️
Here’s one of our (many) local heroes and supporters, Charlie Fennelly, who provides nutritious fresh produce direct from his allotment to plates around South Tyneside. His contribution helps families in South Tyneside ‘get their greens’ on a regular basis – well done Charlie!! 🥕🍅🥔
