Covid19 Pandemic Update

The Covid19 pandemic has brought a variety of challenges across our community. Lots of families are experiencing reductions in their income and difficulties in accessing the food they need.

Porch Boxes are continuing to work hard to provide Crisis Packs during this difficult time, working with their regular local agencies, Social Services, Health Visitors, GP’s etc. to identify areas of need.

We receive most of our regular donations from either churches or schools and from the donation boxes in various Supermarkets around the area. As churches and schools are now closed for the foreseeable future, we are receiving significantly fewer donations. We have also had to make changes to how we operate our warehouse, so it is difficult for us to accept donations there.

We would like to ask all our regular contributors, particularly those who normally donate at their church or school, to deliver their donations to their nearest donation point.

Some of our donation points have been temporarily removed to allow for social distancing so please use one of the below locations.

We thank you all for your continued support.
