In my role as Manager of Trussell Trust’s Salisbury Foodbank I am excited to say we are setting up a Foodbank distribution centre in Amesbury for your local Community. We already help people in Amesbury over 200 times a year from Salisbury and this will enable clients with a voucher to access their food parcel locally without having the travel costs to get into Salisbury. We will also offer refreshments and a chance to chat and find out more about other services of support for them in the area.
We will be opening in January 2017 at Wyndham Hall every Tuesday, initially 4-6pm, which will help those who are working during the day to access our services.
To make it work we will need a team of volunteers who are able to offer their time for a whole shift once a month to give out the food parcels, serve light refreshments and offer a warm welcome.
We will be starting to collect food to support the new Foodbank centre at your local Tesco in Amesbury on 1st 2nd and 3rd December so please look out for us!
