We are doing a food collection in Tesco (Leatherhead store) and need volunteers to stand by the door receiving donations and/or talking to people about the foodbank. We are there on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th July from 9am - 5pm both days.
We would like to get at least 3-4 volunteers on each hour. Can you do an hour or two on either of the days? If so, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 0208 786 8221

We currently have a lot more tea and cereal than we need, so thank you to everyone who has been donating but please don't bring us any more tea and cereal! The items we are currently running low on can be found on the shopping list under the 'donate' column to the left. Thank you!
We now have a freezer in our Leatherhead distribution centre - this means we can store and give out bread to clients! Thank you to ExxonMobil for funding this.

If they don't work for you then you can still drop food at the Generation Resource Centre or most local churches especially Epsom Methodist and Ruxley Church where we run distribution points from. For info please ring 0208 786 8221. Thanks!
