For it’s annual Christmas appeal, the Port of Blyth will be supporting the Blyth Food Bank – who support families and individuals in need in our community.
Entirely self funded, the Food Bank currently makes up 600 food parcels a month and receive more than 100 new referrals a month from social workers and doctors. The Food Bank relies on kind and generous donations from the community. At Christmas time they ensure that those who have very little are offered a few treats to make sure they can enjoy Christmas Day.
To support them the Port will be making a cash donation as well as collecting as much non perishable food items and gifts as possible. Port staff have agreed to support those less fortunate than ourselves to have a good Christmas through the appeal, as they do every year. Should any other members of the community wish to support this appeal, donations can be made at our Commissioners House head office or at the Port Training Centre.
The Food Bank accept any donations of non-perishable foodstuffs but we are particularly looking for any of the following items:
- Chocolates and edible treats
- Tinned meats
- Tinned puddings
- Jam & other sweet items
