5. Pick up donations for us and deliver them to the foodbank (with your own car if possible or car club car).

6. Bring us fresh fruit and vegetables either on a Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. This could be produce donated by local stores (we are currently discussing this with Sainsbury’s local in Harrow Road) or from your own acquaintances.

7. Help with admin tasks such as data entry, counting money, writing thank you letters. This could either be in person at the WECH office on either a Tuesday or Thursday afternoon, or via email.

8. Talk to your church, school, club, workplace etc. about organising a regular food donation to us.

9. Contribute any other creative ideas – how can we publicise our service? Could you make a short film about us to put on You Tube? Could you design a window sticker for us? Could you help with a newsletter? Are there things that you are really good at doing, and how could they be used to benefit the food bank?
