A foodbank is pleading for donations to help it stay open after revealing it can’t keep up with the running costs.
The Harold Hill Foodbank, run by Mark and Ruth Reeves in Faringdon Avenue, needs an extra £1,000 a month to cover the rent.
Mark said: “I am glad to say the food coming in is now keeping up with demand, unfortunately, financial donations are not keeping up with the running costs.
“We do not get any government grants, and there is nothing in the council budget to help.
“Many people assume the Trussell Trust funds the foodbanks, but that is not the case, although it does give support.”
He thanked everyone who has helped out with donations and standing orders. Donate at haroldhill.foodbank.org.uk.
