This is the latest E-mail from the Dunbar Basics Food Bank Team
We have been overwhelmed with the huge amount of donations over the last few weeks. The response has been beyond our expectations. All of our clients and some of our very dear friends received a lovely Christmas Hamper over and above their usual bags of food. All thanks to our wonderful donors.
Our Christmas Day lunch went down a treat. We fed over 30 folks, including 2 Syrian families who were welcomed warmly by everyone there. Santa paid a visit and everyone received a lovely present. It was a very special way to spend Christmas Day and one that I am sure will be repeated next year. If any of you are on Facebook, please check out Fraser Stewart's blog on the Christmas Day lunch. It is well worth a read.
We had a break on Wednesday 27th but were back to normal yesterday. Not as many clients but still very busy.
We have managed to catch up with the sorting out of all the donations. To that end, PLEASE DO NOT DONATE BEANS, SOUP, DRIED PASTA, TOOTH BRUSHES, TOOTHPASTE, SOAP OR TUNA.
We could use donations of tinned ravioli, macaroni, irish stew, spaghetti bolognese and chilli con carne.
Once again, our sincere thanks for all your support. May 2018 bring happiness, good health and many blessings to you all.
