In 2010 Swindon Foodbank had a great time collecting in the supermarkets of Swindon.
We would like to say thanks to The Co-op (Old Town), Sainsburys in Stratton and Bridgemead, Asda (West Swindon) and Tesco Extra for allowing us to collect in their stores. Thanks to the generosity of store managers opening their doors to us, our volunteers giving their time on busy weekends, and of course to the many shoppers who gave us food, we were able to collect nearly 6,000kgs of food!
Our most successful day was our most recent collection in Sainsburys, Bridgemead, where, on 4th December, we collected a whopping 1,386kgs. This extra food will come in handy during the winter months, so that we can keep feeding those in need in Swindon.
We start 2011 with a collection booked on 29th January in Asda, West Swindon. Please come support us, and if you're able to give an hour during the day to help out with collecting, get in touch via our Contact Page.
