We continue to collect donations for the North Cotswold Food Bank at the Westwoods Centre and are asking for your help this Christmas period. With schools off the need increases as children who normally receive free school meals will not be in receipt of these for a few weeks.
The Cotswold Fosseway Lions (formerly the Northleach & Fosse Lions) have just made their fortnightly delivery to the Food Bank of items left at the Westwoods Centre. Their support in this is really appreciated by the Town Council. The list of items needed is updated regularly and can be found here: https://northcotswold.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/
I have spoken to the team at the Food Bank. In addition to the normal long life tins and packets of food that they distribute they are also in need of general household cleaning products. They specifically stated toilet roll (large packs are fine as they split these up), jay cloths, sponges, washing up liquid, cleaning liquids and washing machine items. (They noted that capsules or liquid washing machine items are best as powder clogs in the cold warehouse).
The next delivery will be going early on Tuesday 18th December. Items can be left in the Westwoods foyer.
Many thanks for your donations over the last few years.
Cat Crompton, Town Clerk
