    Sorry!!! Dosen’t Acorns Children’s Hospice have a shop close to Barclay’s Bank so rases is own money?
    Stratford Foodbank (£30,000), why when the fault is in part with the welfare system, and in another with employment practices. Outlawing zero hour contracts would end a lot of problems. A person is either employed, or they are not. Zero hour contracts are simply used to bully staff, I’ve been there.

    Hotels are the worst yet SDC seams to want a hotel on every corner .

    The foodbank that I know of gets donations from Customers at Tesco
