Urgent appeal for donations from Colindale Foodbank

For many families on tight budgets, December is a difficult month. The Christmas and the cold weather inevitably brings all manner of unexpected expenses. It is a busy time at our local foodbanks and we should support our local Foodbanks.

The Colindale foodbank was the Barnet Eye charity of the year 2017. We urge you to support them. The first weekend of every month, there is a collection for Colindale Foodbank in Mill Hill at
The Sacred Heart RC Church on Mill Hill Broadway. You can just drop a bag of provisions into the narthex (lobby area by doors) or leave it at the Presbertery. You don't have to be a member of the chuch, just pop a bag in and it will be delivered to the foodbank by volunteers on Monday.

They are a great local charity, with miniscule admin overheads  helping those most at risk in our community.

Find out more about the foodbank - - which has done fantastic work distributing food to the most needy people in Barnet. This has been supported by people all across the Borough.
