We are pleased to announce that Telford Crisis Support has secured £33,000 a year funding from Telford & Wrekin Council for six years (until 2023)
The support from Telford & Wrekin council will enable us to provide support from our three sites in Leegomery, Newport and Woodside, and to distribute parcels to those in need in the community. Whether it’s from Oakenagtes to Overdale, Coalport to Crudgintgon, there’s not a single inch of Telford & Wrekin that we won’t cover.
No one need go without the basic essentials that they need to keep themselves and their families warm, fed, clean, clothed, warm and healthy.
From this Thursday until Saturday 2nd December, We will be collecting food at TESCO on the wrekin retail park as part of the annual neighbourhood food collection.
So far Tesco has helped to raise an incredible 46 million meals for people in need. This includes customer donations as well as the 20% top-up from Tesco and food donated to permanent collection points.
Please, if you are planning a trip to the shops this weekend, please spare a tin or two for your local Foodbank!
Give back this Christmas, with the Reverse Advent Calendar.
Each day add an item to a box, and donate it to us before 22nd December, So that we can help support people in need this Christmas. #telfordadvent
