Guides’ foodbank donation

A COLOURFUL array of cereal has been donated for people in need.

Members of the 6th Clevedon West Guides collected the boxes to support Clevedon Foodbank, which supplies three days of food to anyone in a crisis situation.

This could be due to relationship breakdown, redundancy, an unexpected bill on a low income or delays in benefit payments.

The guides collected their donations for the foodbank, which is based at Hither Green Industrial Estate, as part of their Guide Challenge badge.

Guide leader Izzy Parker said: “As part of our varied programme, we regularly do some sort of community action and we were delighted to help with this new venture in Clevedon.”

The foodbank opens from noon until 2pm every Monday and Friday, when people with vouchers they have received from agencies and organisations such as social workers or job centres can exchange them for a food package.

Since opening on May 11, the facility has given food parcels to people in need every day it has been open.
