This Christmas we are going to be hosting two Christmas collections at our office. We will be collecting donations for Leeds North and West Foodbank and Radio Aire’s Mission Christmas toy appeal, where we are a registered collection centre.
Leeds North and West Foodbank
In the 3 weeks leading up to Christmas, the foodbank will provide over 300 Christmas food parcels for local individuals and families in crisis.
Their top 10 required items are:
- Long life milk
- Long life fruit juice
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned meat
- Tinned fish
- Tinned tomatoes
- Pasta sauces
- Tinned fruit
- Sponge puddings
We have a collection box in the reception area of our main office. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
