Marsworth Food Bank
The churches of Marsworth, Ivinghoe/Pitstone and Slapton have operated a joint foodbank. It has been invaluable to a significant number of families and individuals, especially at the height of the pandemic. However, Ivinghoe/Pitstone has seen a reduction in demand and decided to phase out the current arrangements. Marsworth Parochial Church Council believes it right to continue this Updatesupport for as long as possible and hope that users will notice little difference.
Fresh food is essential (hence the importance of cash donations - see below) but also tinned meats, pies etc, tinned fish, soups, marmalade/jam, pasta/pasta sauces together with tinned fruit and teas and coffees. Biscuits and chocolate snack bars (Penguins and Kit-Kats etc) are also much appreciated.
Please continue to support the foodbank - contributions have been reducing and they will be even more important going forward. Those wishing to make donations of food and household items, please drop these off in the box in the lych-gate at the church, or directly to Richard/Lisa Cooper (01296 661725) at Karibu – at the top of Vicarage Gardens. All donations appreciated but, as mentioned, we shall try to let people know what is most needed. Generally speaking, our users live alone and are more senior than junior so jumbo packs etc are of limited value.
Cash donations - Financial donations are also greatly welcome so anybody wishing to make a donation please direct it to Jenny Sheils (the PCC Treasurer: 01296 668230) at Leveret Lodge, just opposite the church lych-gate. Donations can either be ‘one-off’ or, if preferred, by standing order. Either way, the value of your donation to the foodbank can be increased by 25% at no cost to yourself if you are able to sign a Gift Aid declaration. Jenny has the details for setting up a standing order and Gift Aid forms. If you are already making regular payments to the joint foodbank and would like to amend this to Marsworth, can you please contact Jenny and she will assist in transferring your standing order to the Marsworth Church account.
If any Marsworth reader is experiencing hardship or knows of somebody who may be, please contact Richard or Jenny to ask for help. Either they or one of our volunteers will get in touch - in strictest confidence.
Richard Cooper, Stephen Wooley, Jenny Shiel
