Donate to The Basic Idea Foodbank at the Whitemoor Lane Co-operative

We are pleased to announce that you can now buy an extra item whilst shopping at the Whitemoor Lane branch of the Co-op.  As part of supporting the local community the store has agreed to host a collection point for The Basic Idea foodbank.

Whilst we have a more than ample supply of baked beans, soup, pasta and tinned fish there are many things that we are very short of, that will enable us to keep this critical service available to those of our neighbours in need.

On the side of the bright yellow donations bin, you can find a list of what we could really use at the moment.  This list will be updated regularly to reflect gaps in the foodbank store.  You can also get regular updates about what’s most useful to donate by following Hope for Belper on Facebook where you can also see what else the churches and their partners are up to in the town.

In addition we are hoping to confirm that Hope for Belper (The Basic Idea) has been chosen as the local charity that will benefit from the 1% of members own brand purchases; this would be a further boost for all the volunteers involved in providing critical food aid to our neighbours.

Thanks again for all who support the project on a regular basis – your donations of food, money and time are appreciated enormously!
