Foodbank Collection – please continue to donate, it makes a difference

Your contributions are very much appreciated, please keep donating.

Food drop-off points continue to be either 4 Rectory Court or Mill House, Main Street (just above the war memorial on the opposite side). You will find a box on the porch outside each house where you can deposit your food donations.

​​​If you would like to donate but are unable to drop off at either points then please email Paul Hodgetts or Mervyn Curtis and we will arrange to collect.

Every week, the Jubilee Foodbank pick up from us early on a Tuesday morning. They are specific about the type of food they will accept and so please see the list below, or visit their website to see the latest wanted list. Click on Shopping List – Jubilee Foodbank Market Harborough.

We will continue to keep everyone up to date with progress via this Website and the village Facebook and Instagram pages.
