As referrals increase and the school holiday lunch project pilot approaches every donation really, really matters.
Say Hello to our lovely neighbour with a truly accessible donation point in a truly beautiful part of our Valley. Thank you Ayesha Communications.

Great news, Whitworth now has a donation point at the Co-op in Whitworth.
With referrals for families throughout our beautiful Valley at an all-time high and the long school holidays approaching this is wonderful news from Whitworth.
Thanks Rachael Barker for co-ordinating this and yes please talk to us about the work currently underway around tackling holiday hunger
