Co-op staff donate to food bank

Some of the staff with their generous gifts

As usual at Christmas, the 18 members of staff at the Winchelsea Beach Co-op made a special collection and personally purchased, for the Rye Foodbank, a hamper of luxury food items to be passed out with the usual food help. Thanks to everyone at the Co-op, we know that this gesture will brighten up a number of Christmas tables around Rye.
Happy new year to you all.

Pictured with the goodies are Devon and Bill who were on duty to supervise the handover.

  1. I’ve often listened to a lovely song on the Eric Clapton “Unplugged” album called “Nobody knows you when you’re down and out”. But the actions of the staff at the Winchelsea Beach Co-op, and many, many others, prove that this isn’t true here. Lots of people have a heart for those for whom life is a struggle, and take practical steps to express it. Thank you all! – the managers and volunteers at the Food Bank couldn’t be more appreciative.
