North Norfolk foodbank needs more volunteers
The Cromer and District Foodbank is urgently seeking volunteers to help in some of its North Norfolk distribution centres. Tony Rothe reports.
The Cromer and District Foodbank currently operates distribution centres in Holt, Sheringham, Cromer, Aylsham, North Walsham and Stalham, with its main offices and warehouse in Cromer. The charity offers food, support and signposting across 200 square miles of North Norfolk.
Having successfully opened two new distribution centres in the last twelve months, the Foodbank is appealing for additional volunteers in its distribution centres in Aylsham, Holt, North Walsham and Stalham.
Founded in 2012, the Cromer and District Foodbank now works with over 95 partner agencies and met more than a thousand requests for food in the last financial year, distributing 25 tonnes of food - enough to feed 2484 people for three days.
“145 volunteers help us get emergency food to people in real need,” said Ella King, Project Manager, “We want people to enjoy volunteering and there are lots of ways to get involved. Volunteers are the life-blood of our foodbank, and volunteering offers a chance to make a real difference to the lives of local people in financial crisis.”
Anyone who might be able to help is invited to contact Ella by email : firstname.lastname@example.org
