Tab closed 17th December
Due to a funeral, the Tab will be closed on Tuesday 17th December but will open as usual on Thursday 19th December.
People are being forced to food banks because five weeks is too long to wait for Universal Credit. This isn’t right – the government needs to end the five-week wait. Click on the headline to join the Trussell Trust campaign.
This is our busiest Christmas ever.
We are still collecting non-perishable food, toiletries and Christmas treats up until Monday 16th December.
We do not accept toys, clothes or other household items. Please donate these elsewhere.
As well as thanking our regular, dedicated volunteers, we would like to express our appreciation to those who helped with the Tesco collections and the teams from Barclays Bank, London and Quadrant and the Financial Conduct Authority who sorted the food for us.
Thanks to all who offered their time recently but we currently have enough volunteers.
