CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE TO HELP NEEDY PEOPLE IN BRIGG & DISTRICT
A Christmas food drive to help the needy will take place in Brigg and district on Wednesday, November 28.
A team of collectors will be calling at local homes to collect donations.
They can also be left at the Fine and County/DDM Residential office on Wrawby Street, Brigg.
All items generously given will be made available to the local food bank on November 30.
"Anything you could spare will help feed those in need," say the organisers from the Fine & Country Foundation, a registered charity.
Items they are looking for include cereal, soap, pasta, tinned vegetables, sauce, tea and coffee, beans, biscuits, rice, tinned meat, tinned tomatoes and UHT milk.
A number of Brigg people have been inquiring whether there's still a food bank operating in Brigg and wondering how they can donate items.
The answer, in both cases, is yes.
Brigg Food Bank is based at St Mary's Church, on Barnard Avenue.
Call 0771 431401 or 07719 431402 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Tesco stores across the country also support food banks, with generous customers making donations.
Five years ago, in October 2013, Brigg Blog reported the food bank's launch.
At the time the co-ordinator said the project needed donations of non-perishable goods, such as tinned and packaged food.
