St. Bart’s Parishioners Food Pantry (SBFP) 21 April 2024

A huge thank you to The Knights of St Columba for their generous donation which has given a boost to our self-serve in the porch and has also helped our 5 families this week. For those parishioners who take and share, check out the provision of herbs and spices to liven up your dinners! God bless. If you need support/can offer to support, please contact the parish office or Jackie Tominey 07702 948585

If you prefer to make a financial donation, you can put cash in an envelope marked St. Bart’s Food Pantry through the presbytery door, write a cheque to St Bartholomew’s Church reference Food Pantry and post or pop through the presbytery door or make a bank transfer using this:

At our November 2022 Parish Council meeting it was agreed to set up a food pantry in the church entrance to support parishioners, their family, friends and/or neighbours with free food provisions during this cost-of-living crisis. There will be bags provided to take the items away and soon, the church opening times will be displayed outside the church. Please don’t be shy – we’re in this together!!  If you can, donations would be gratefully received though please make sure the items are in date – please leave in the marked box. We’ll start with non-perishable food first and, hopefully, progress later to fresh fruit and veg. Any surplus food will be donated to our local foodbank at the new Cottonmill Community Centre.  Any queries or offers of help as the pantry builds, please contact:

Jackie Tominey on 07702 948585 or
