Storehouse Foodbank comes to Sudbury

November 15, 2012.

Storehouse is a local compassion programme of Stour Valley Vineyard Church. It is totally volunteer-run and cares throughout the year for the most vulnerable members of our community through practical support.

Launched in 2007 with just one food bag, Storehouse has since given away hundreds of emergency food bags across the area. With food donated by members of the church and the local community, Storehouse has been able to give 'no strings attached' help where it is very much needed.

Last Christmas, Storehouse, local churches and groups, gave away 43 hampers filled with donated food and would like to more than treble that number this year. Andrew Stewart-Darling, pastor of Stour Valley Vineyard Church says, 'These hampers are going to give local families and individuals in crisis, a Christmas Day to remember. It takes a lot to admit that you need help, so we want to give it in a way that allows people their dignity.  We are delighted and humbled to be supported by Waitrose and Mackman this year.'

In association with Waitrose and Mackman and other local partners, Waitrose shoppers are being given a special Christmas shopping list as they enter the Sudbury store to give guidance on what to donate. They will then be able to donate these goods at the front of the store and the food will be packaged up  in a donated office space and given to those in need in time for Christmas.

Look out for the special 'Christmas Shopping List' in Sudbury's Waitrose to see how you can support this worthy cause on Saturday 24th and 25th November and Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd December.

For more information about Storehouse, please call 07973 710905 or drop them a line at storehouse@stourvalleyvineyard.org. There is also an online shop for people unable to get to Waitrose which you can find on the Stour Valley Vineyard website.

What Our Clients Say
We knew straight away that we wanted Mackman to be the brand agency to work with us on our project. We were given a real sense of confidence that they would do a great job and we were not proved wrong. We look forward to ‘growing together’ over years to come.
