Reverse advent calendar would help Amble Food Bank

Posted on 01st December 2017 | in Community , News

The Amble Food Bank would like to introduce the reverse advent calendar.

The idea is instead of opening a calendar door and collecting a treat, we thought we could ask the kind people of Amble and surrounding area to collect an extra item(s) to their daily/weekly shop and drop them in a collection point in Amble.

These are both Co-ops and the Blue Bell public house on Albert Street. For larger donations, or monetary donations, please contact the email below.

We thank the community of Amble and surrounding areas for supporting those in need not only at Christmas but throughout the year.

Amble Food Bank would like to thank Morrisons of Alnwick for their donations throughout the year, also both Co-ops and The Blue Bell public house in Amble for having collecting baskets on their premises.

We also thank the Amble Women’s Institute and the schools, churches and others for their food and monetary donations over the past year.

We finally thank the community of Amble and surrounding areas for their continued generous donations and hope this will continue next year by all mentioned above.

    Hi – I used to live in Amble and it’s good to see that the Food Bank is doing well to help those people who need food and vital household items. I have a lot of time for your volunteers so well done to all of you. You don’t get the credit you deserve.

    I’m visiting Amble at the beginning of July and I would like to make a food donation. Is there a central point where I can drop it off? Any particular day?

    Thank you and kind regards.

    Bernard.
