Waveney Food Bank

We are fast approaching Christmas and there has been considerable attention in the media recently concerning food poverty.  Our local Food banks are struggling at present. They urgently need: Tinned Veg, Corned Beef, Tinned Ham, Tinned Tomatoes, Sweets for kids and Microwave Puddings.


People can still leave food at the church when attending Private Prayer and hopefully Mass (when restrictions are eased), but we can also  help by donating money directly to our local Waveney food bank.  The Waveney Food bank have provided us with a document explaining how we can help, please take the time to read the attached document , please click here.  To register your donation for Gift Aid please click here

If you can support our Coronavirus Appeal, please donate at, where you will find also more information about how CAFOD is responding. Thank you.
