Foodbank Collections no longer taking place at Redbourn Parish Centre

Unfortunately foodbank collections are no longer taking place at the Parish Centre as it is now being used by hirers and office staff, with Covid-19 measures in place.

However food donations can be taken directly to dedicated foodbank groups such as https://www.thevineyardchurch.co.uk/feed and https://www.dens.org.uk/get-involved/food-donations/.

Councillor David Mitchell has looked into alternative collection points in Redbourn but, given Covid-19 restrictions, this has not proved possible. If the situation changes we will share the information via the usual channels
