Beacon Food Bank Dec 21st

This morning Elaine & I visited the Portsdown Community Church at The Beacon in the Meridian Centre in order to see the packing of food hampers to be given to those families most in need of help and support over the festive period.

Lending a hand

Lending a hand

We were able to watch the hampers being packed and also to lend a hand for about an hour or so.

The area was covered with cartons being filled and presents being wrapped, with support from a lot of people from all around the area.

Those in need are referred from many different agencies, including Havant Borough Council, Children’s Services, MIND and many other organisations.

When we left, the hampers were being made ready for distribution during the afternoon, and it was expected the around 80 would be sent out.

The hampers are not just distributed at this time of year, it is an all-year-round service.
