Helping local people in crisis

Your donations enable us to provide emergency food and toiletries to local people in crisis.  To donate food items please ensure that they are non-perishable goods. For items such as toiletries and clothes please ensure they are in good condition.

The following list sets out what we generally need the most:

Food

  • Beans/peas (dried, tinned) 
  • Biscuits (low-sugar, low fat)
  • Canned fruit 
  • Carton juice (orange, apple)
  • Cornmeal

N.B. When buying tinned food, if at all possible, it will be helpful if you choose tins with easy peel tops to make it easier for some of our homeless clients who have not got access to can openers.
