Well done Harpenden!

14th May 2020

Over the weekend of 9 and 10 May and also during the evening of 12 May, Harpenden Round Table carried out a street collection on our behalf.

Your generosity has blown us away!

Over 8 tonnes of food and essentials were collected together with over £5,000 of cash donations.

We cannot express enough thanks to all those who helped and of course to Harpenden’s residents for being so generous. Not only will we be able to replenish our depleted stocks of food and toiletries, but we will also be able to continue buying the hard to get foods such as rice, vegetables, long life milk and long life fruit juice.

Thank You Harpenden Round Table!

Huge thanks to everyone else who helped to make the event such a success:
Our volunteers who always step and rise to the challenge, responding to an SOS for more people power on Saturday afternoon and Sunday
Our volunteers in the warehouse over the weekend and this week processing the mountain of donations
Our super helpful drivers from Emmaus and the Emmaus charity for supporting our foodbank with the use of their vans and drivers
Rocco Landscape and Building for the use of the truck
Abbey Theatre – St Albans for the now iconic Rainbows
Everyone else who helped behind the scenes: co-ordinating, making social media posts of which there were many and everything and anything else
