Telford Foodbank has moved!

On Friday 29th June, we said goodbye to our temporary site at Leegomery Community Centre and moved to our permanent home in Sutton Hill.

In just one afternoon, our amazing volunteers helped us to move our entire operation to our new site so that we could open first thing on the following Monday Morning.

We are so grateful to have such an amazing team who aren’t afraid to get stuck in! 

They really are the heroes within the organisation. 

We also want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone at Simmonds Transport for arranging a driver and truck to be with us all day to move our bulky items! They gave their time and resources for FREE! 

Our new site is based next to the Hub on the Hill centre in Sutton Hill.

Our doors are open Mon – Fri between 10am and 5pm so please come and visit!

 

Our address is now:

Telford Crisis Support, 78-83 Severn Walk, Sutton Hill, TF7 4AS

Win up to £25000!

The Telford and Wrekin Community launches today with the first draw happening THIS Saturday 28th July!

If you’ve not heard of this, Telford and Wrekin Community Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Telford and Wrekin. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit Telford and Wrekin and its residents.

Play the lottery, support Telford and Wrekin – it’s that simple!

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week. Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000! That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!

From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in Telford and Wrekin! To put this in perspective when you play the National Lottery 28% goes to good causes – This lottery has more than DOUBLED the ticket percentage that goes to good causes.

You can choose which good cause gets 50p of the 60p (the remaining 10p will be distributed to other good causes).

Fridays don’t get Breader than this!

We often get asked if we receive any support from local supermarkets, well the answer is yes! we get support and donations from Sainsburys, Morrisons give us donation points, and we collect end of day surplus from Marks and Spencer which is also being expanded to Lidl stores at the start of July!

That being said, we weren’t quite ‘bready’ for what we received this afternoon! Thanks to June and other store colleagues at ASDA Donnington wood, they have all put in a £donation and bought us 100 loaves of bread!!

They’ve really used their loaf on this one and we cannot wait to see what comes next!

ASDA town centre will soon also be launching the donation tokens that will be handed out at the checkouts to be put in to one of three slots to support a charity, one of which will be Telford Crisis Support! Our donation trolley can also be found as pictured!

Huge thank to everyone that continues to make a donation to the Foodbank! YOU are the heroes.
