News of the Salisbury Foodbank – an exciting change!
On 1st November 2020 Salisbury Foodbank became an independent charity.
It means that, like the other 400+ Trussell Trust Foodbanks throughout the UK, the Salisbury Foodbank now has a specially appointed board of trustees, drawn from the Salisbury area, who bring to the foodbank their own knowledge, specialist expertise and enthusiastic support.
The Trussell Trust is a national charity supporting foodbanks, whereas the Salisbury Foodbank is a local charity supporting local people. The Foodbank uses a network of local connections and support agencies to help people in their time of crisis.
St Laurence Church will be continuing to support the work of the Salisbury Foodbank and any food donated (which can be brought to The Vicarage in Barford Lane) will continue to go to there.
If you are a supporter who wishes to give a monetary donation, in future you will have to decide whether you wish to donate to the Salisbury Foodbank, The Trussell Trust – or perhaps both!
If you want your donation to go to the Salisbury Foodbank, cheques must now be
made payable to “Salisbury Foodbank”.
If you are able to complete a Gift Aid Form to accompany your donation, the Foodbank will receive
an extra 25p for every £1 you give at no extra cost to you.
Cheques or cash in a clearly marked envelope can be delivered to The Vicarage, and all donations – both food and money – will be taken to the Salisbury Foodbank on a weekly basis.
