It’s great to see that Whitehead Storehouse has received two lovely comments recently.
One was from someone who received a Christmas parcel last year but doesn’t need one this year because they now have a job and are in a much better place but said they were so grateful to receive the parcel last year as “it really helped”.
The other is an email from someone who received a parcel this year and said, “thank you so much for the wonderful box just delivered to me. Its very much appreciated and welcome in these difficult times.”
Whitehead Storehouse could not help anyone without YOUR help. Thank you so much to all the residents and businesses of Whitehead and further afield who have contributed food, money, vouchers, gifts and time that have enabled the Storehouse to help those who are disadvantaged.

Call or text in complete confidence on 0759 6213 763. Or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get a call back or a text or an email within a few hours from one of our volunteers. We may also be able to help with some other needs.
If you are able to help us with providing food for those in need, you can donate in-date, non-perishable food at any church, the community centre or the Spar shop on Edward Road, Whitehead. Donations also gratefully accepted.
If you want to donate to the Whitehead Storehouse, the following list shows examples of what can be accepted. All items must be non-perishable, Whitehead Storehouse food bank cannot accept fresh food or perishable items such as fresh milk or bread, although these can be provided to individuals / families if necessary but will be purchased at the time by the Storehouse. Some families or individuals have limited access to cooking facilities and so need cold parcels or kettle parcels, to provide at least some food. There is also a need for other, non-food items.
