Foodbank 

We are still open on weekday mornings at present to both receive and give out Foodbank parcels - some people have asked how they can donate financially as they are unable to get out ... see below:

Ways that you can give financially to the Foodbank are:

By cash / cheque to Poole Foodbank, Longfleet United Reformed Church, Longfleet Road, Poole. BH15 2HP. (Cheques should be made payable to Faithworks Wessex, but marked for Poole Foodbank)

Direct payment to the Faithworks bank account (00015300    40 - 52 - 40) - but again, please specify that your donation is for Poole Foodbank.

Through Local Giving: https://localgiving.org/charity/fww/ and specify Poole Foodbank in the message box.

Monthly giving: Text POOLE and the amount you wish to donate to 70085. Eg. POOLE10 will create a £10 monthly gift. (You will be charged the amount donated, plus a standard network rate message. You will then be charged the donation amount to your monthly mobile bill.)

Dedicated helpline launched to support the vulnerable:

 

We know that this is a stressful and worrying time for everyone and we want to assure you that the local community is coming together, alongside local churches, to help and support those of you that need it.
Many of you who are self-isolating will have family, friends and neighbours already supporting you with accessing food and every day essentials. We've seen our communities unite to launch support groups across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to help each other during this time. 
We also know that there are some people in our communities who do not have a support network in place. For these vulnerable people, who have no one to support them, we have launched a dedicated helpline. The phone line is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.

Telephone: 0300 1237052

 

 

Through our ‘Together We Can’ community response we have more than 1500 volunteers plus council staff who will be on hand to help by picking up and delivering food and essential items, as well as providing a cheerful voice to break up the long days of self-isolation.
