How You Can Help
In association with Newcastle East Foodbank and St. Peter’s Neighbourhood Association, we’re asking people who live and work in St. Peter’s neighbourhood to support local families in need this Christmas by donating food for the Newcastle East Foodbank.
No one should face going hungry and there are lots of great foodbanks working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
We’d welcome items such as tinned fruit, jars of coffee, teabags, tinned vegetables and pasta sauce. You may want to donate essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products as well.
You can drop off your donations at the Precept office on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th December between 9AM and 5PM. Our address is:
Claire Armstrong, Client Services Director at Precept: ‘Christmas is such a special time of year, we wanted to support our local community and those in need by getting local businesses and residents to donate food to the Newcastle East Foodbank.’ Robert Mee, St. Peter’s Neighbourhood Association commented ‘Every now and then, everyone needs a helping hand. People in St. Peter’s are happy to give, and help this Christmas.’
