What We Need

Obviously ALL ambient food donations are massively appreciated, however if you are purposely buying things to donate the following are most needed:

  • UHT Milk
  • Breakfast cereal
  • Baked Beans
  • Meat products  (Stews, hot dogs, meatballs etc.)
  • Tuna
  • Ravioli/Spaghetti
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Soup (The more filling the better)
  • Freeze dried noodles
  • Protein/chocolate bars (mars snickers that kind of thing)
  • Small kitchen appliances
  • Crockery
  • Cutlery
  • Cooking pots and pans
  • Bath and kitchen towels
  • Bedding
  • Winter clothing

The help bank is currently relying on donations of small kitchen appliances (kettles,toasters,sandwich makers etc) crockery,cutlery and cooking pots and pans.

Bath and kitchen towels ,quilts and other bedding and warm winter clothing are also valuable items.

Also a few little “nice touches” such as a mirror or picture, sofa throw, cushions etc to make a bedsit, flat or even just a room in a shared house more like home.

Imagine having to start again for some reason and then imagine having to do that with no or very limited funds – What would you be grateful for?


This is not a finite list but a general guidance of suitable items.

If wanted, you can also donate cash that will be used for buying products by the team.

A lot of people only have access to a kettle so any “in a mug“ product can help
