Harvest is traditionally a time to give thanks for the food we have to eat. The season isn’t over yet, but One Can Trust’s Harvest Appeal 2015 has seen the biggest, most generous response from the people of our community since the  foodbank launched in 2011. We want to give thanks for and to you too!

Within a week of beginning the appeal, we’d been contacted by schools, churches and a variety of other organisations and companies all of whom wanted to collect food for the bank.  We know some people have donated anonymously so we can’t do a total count, but as of today (17th October) we know over 70 groups have given food!

As a result, we spilled out of our stores at Big Yellow, we filled the reception at the Hub and a big room at the Wesley Methodist Church. We had to find a separate location to receive, store and sort food, and that’s the first time that’s happened! We have temporarily moved into an empty shop in Micklefield which is actually part of an exciting venture by another charity in the community and we’ll be sharing more about that soon.

We’ll miss some people in our thanks, we’re sorry! We’ll also be sending thank you certificates to you if we know you donated.

So, in no particular order as they say, here goes.
