We will be open as normal each Wednesday during December at the Baptist church hall in Rye’s Cinque Ports Street from 1pm until 3pm.
We plan to give each of our clients a hamper for Christmas containing festive goods above and beyond the normal weekly allowance so please, if possible, donate one or more of the items listed below, ensuring that all items are in date, packaging remains unopened, and do not include alcohol.
Please bear in mind due to lack of storage facilities we cannot accept anything that has to be cold stored. We are also unable to accept items that are not actual food stuffs (decorations, crackers, toys etc.) We are sorry to say this, but this is due to lack of storage capacity.
We would appreciate any of the items listed below and would like to receive them on or before Wednesday, December 8. We will distribute Christmas hampers on Wednesday, December 15. Fresh fruit and vegetables are also welcome but not until Wednesday, December 22 when we will distribute boxes for our clients.
