A huge thank you for all the kind donations of food sent in for the Southampton Basics Bank. Eight and a half thousand people in Southampton have been fed from the Basics Bank this year alone and two and a half thousand people have been clothed. So as you can see your donations are gratefully received. Christmas time is a particularly difficult time for many families and we will be collecting festive food for the Basics Bank at the beginning of December. There will be a letter out nearer the time.
