Foodbank Summer update

foodbank
We still have some shortage items and are always grateful of any donations but we’d be especially pleased to get

Plain rice
Tinned tomatoes
Tinned fruit
Tinned potatoes /instant mash    

We are out of toiletries and whilst food has to be our priority toiletries are always thankfully received
Shampoo
Shower gel
Soap
Deodorant
Tooth paste
Tooth Brushes - Are in short supply
Shaving foam

A big thank you to everyone who supports us through prayer and donations of food and money. We really could not exist without you.

As a result of changes to the use of our Mornington distribution centre it will shortly no longer be possible to restock from our warehouse during the working day.
This means that in order to continue to supply to our clients, we will require a small group of people to commit to a regular van run one evening a week. 
This would involve collecting the van which will already have the stock loaded into it, driving it to Mornington, unloading and putting the food on the correct shelves.
 
If you would be interested in committing to support us in this way or would like to know more about it please email brenda@southbelfast.foodbank.org.uk       Thanks.
 

Many thanks from your Church Champion, Brenda Johnston

In Fitzroy we recognise we have a legal duty of care to look after children and provide a safe environment for them as best we can.  The Kirk Session has adopted the Presbyterian Church in Ireland’s child protection guidelines and our Policy can be viewed on the notice board in the rear hall.  This is aimed at creating an environment where children and young people may enjoy social contact, personal and spiritual development and where they and the leaders and helpers working with them will be kept safe.
