Doynton Food Bank Villagers have donated a number of food items which can be found in a box in the church porch, please feel free to help yourself if you are in need. Also a big thank you for your continued support for North Bristol Foodbank, which is more vital than ever. Foodbank use in the UK rose by a staggering 89% in April this year compared with the same month last year according to the Trussell Trust. Please leave any tins or packets you can spare in the box in the church porch (please make sure they are at least 3 months within their use-by date). However, the foodbank no longer needs cardboard boxes for home food-parcel deliveries, as they have secured a supply from a local company. Thank you again for your solidarity with local people in need!
