Praise for generous foodbank donations
The generosity of St Peter’s residents has been praised by a foodbank collections organiser.
Parish councillor John Renshaw said the amount collected during this year’s first monthly collection for Worcester Foodbank “went very well”.
He added: “I’d say the amount we collected was on a par with our monthly collections last year and we’re very grateful for the continuing generosity of St Peter’s residents.”
With St Peter’s Baptist Church being used as a Covid vaccinations centre co-ordination of the items collected for the foodbank has transferred to St Mark in the Cherry Orchard Church.
Mr Renshaw said: “St Mark’s Church worked well as an alternative venue to collect and sort donations.
“We also had one or two people who live near the church turn up at the door with donations, which was great.
“By lunchtime the day after the collection all the donations had been sorted and delivered to the foodbank, from where it could be used to help people in need.”
He added that anyone who would like to get involved with future collections would be welcomed and could contact him on 07732 367600 or email email@example.com.
The next foodbank collection in St Peter’s will be this Thursday, May 13 at 8pm.
