The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has brought no disruption to their ability to reach users because food deliveries have replaced the traditional centres.

All those in need should phone 01304 728428.

The best way to donate during the Covid-19 lockdown is at Sainsbury's or Co-op stores.

Large donations can be phoned through for collection if people don't want to leave their homes.
