New Years Day food bank collection

Weymouth FC will be visiting the Weymouth Food Bank at the Baptist Church again this new year.

We will be doing a collection at our home game with Poole Town on New Years Day. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.

Started by Lily and Bob Mockett in 2012, the work of the food bank has grown rapidly over the time since. Supported by most of the churches in the town, several of the large supermarkets, and many organisations and individuals, who supply them with gifts of food, toiletries and donations.

820 people were fed in that first year; in 2015 they fed an amazing 2,547. Sadly, the need for this help is growing rapidly.

Weymouth Food Bank can be contacted on 07531 167465 or email; weymouthfb@outlook.com

The Food Bank is open from 10-30am-12-30pm on Tuesdays and Fridays.
