Community pantry & Financial Assistance Fund

Thank you for all the items generously donated to the community pantry. Currently, we do not need any more tinned tomatoes or beans. But we do need fresh veg and fruit, long-life milk, butter, cereal, tea and instant coffee, toiletries, toilets rolls and cleaning materials, also pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes, sugar, tinned fruit, crisps and cereal. 

Please keep spreading the word that this is a resource for anyone in our villages, whether their need is occasional or regular. There is also a fund for those in need of financial assistance, perhaps with school uniforms and shoes, essential or unexpected bills. Please do feel free to contact Rev Val Armstrong who can assist you in complete confidentiality, Tel: 01206262812 Email: mrsvarmstrong@hotmail.com It is also possible to have a delivery arranged for those unable to get to the Community Pantry in Nayland, again please contact Rev Val about this.
