Addiscombe Residents have set up a food and household goods donation point at St Mildred’s Church, Bingham Road. This donation site was set up in response to appeals by local charities, such as Croydon Voluntary Action and Croydon Salvation Army, that Croydon food banks were running low on foods and household essentials.
Addiscombe Mutual-Aid has been able to run a five-days-a-week donation point because of the support of Addiscombe residents who have given up their time. Councillor Sean Fitzsimons, who was involved in help setting-up of the donation site, said: “It would also not have been possible to do this without the help and support from St Mildred’s Church”.
We are always looking for volunteers, especially as many original volunteers are going back to work. If you are interested, please email [email protected].
Addiscombe residents have made a video about the donation site, and you can check this out below on how you can join others in Addiscombe to support our local food bank, who are in real need of vital goods. The food and household goods collected are passed to Croydon CVA and Croydon Salvation Army who deliver food parcels to people in need across Croydon. You can make food and household Goods donations on Tuesday – Saturdays, between 10 am-2 pm at St Mildred’s Church, Bingham Road, CR0 7EB
