Dear Parents and Carers,
Spotlight have contacted us to say that they will be providing food parcels for vulnerable adults and families in need. Members of the Basingstoke Covid-19 group (Found on Facebook) will be coordinating volunteers to distribute the parcels to homes across the local area. If you are available to help with a food bank drive, please contact this group on Facebook as they may take you up on an offer of transporting parcels to the community.
If you are able to help then you can drop off your donations directly to Spotlight at Hart House, Priestley Road RG24 9UP. They will be open 10am-4pm Monday to Saturday. The charity is going to reduce the hours their shop is open to Wednesdays 10am-1pm and Saturday 10am-4pm for collections for the foreseeable future to enable them to concentrate on food distribution.
Spotlight have asked us to email them to highlight any of our vulnerable families or adults who would benefit from their support. If you feel that you would benefit from this, please do let us know so we can pass on your details with your permission. Please forward details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whitchurch Welfare Trust may also be able to help families in hardship, get in touch via: email@example.com
