    Could You Donate Bags for Life?

    by  • April 27, 2014 • Donations, Silklife Foodbank

    imagesWhen people are referred to us they are already going through a very difficult time and so we want to preserve their dignity and show them kindness.  One of the ways we do that is to use a new bag for life, from the main supermarkets, for each food parcel. We buy the bags ourselves and as you can imagine we go through a lot!

    If there are any companies/businesses or anyone who would like to help and support us in this way you can contact us through Facebook or the contact page on the website.  Thanks so much!

For any agencies who are open between those dates and who require food parcels please let us know before Thursday 10th April how many bags you require and we will arrange them to be available for collection from the Silklife Centre before we close for the holiday. Many thanks!
