The Councillors from the Headingley & Hyde Park and Little London & Woodhouse wards are teaming up for a Food Bank Donation Drive on Sun 4th and Mon 5th October. All items donated will go to Rainbow Junktion to help people in the local area.
A message from the councillors:
Rainbow Junktionhave been doing a phenomenal job for our community in keeping people fed during the Covid-19 crisis.
They rely on donations, and we have been overwhelmed by the response to the last food bank donation drives, but sadly the longer the crisis goes on the more help people need.
We are teaming up to make this our biggest collection yet. 18 donation points around Headingley, Hyde Park and Woodhouse!
You will be able to drop donations off between 5pm-8pm THIS Sunday, and 9am-2pm THIS Monday.
If you’re financially stable and doing a shop for yourself between now and then, please consider spending a few quid on a few items to donate – or alternatively go through your cupboards and see if there’s anything you’d like to donate there!
