NEWHAVEN FOOD BANK DONATION

May 31st, 2018.


The Seaford and Newhaven Branch of the Labour Party made a donation of £60 to the Newhaven Food Bank recently. The Branch Chair, Teresa O’Brien, pictured here with Cllr. Penny Lower and a member of staff from the Sussex Community Development Association also committed the Branch to a monthly collection of non-food items for the Food Bank.


The dedicated staff and volunteers provide an essential service for families and individuals in crisis. There is an ongoing need for food donations as the demand continues to rise and is particularly acute over the long Summer holidays.

The Food Bank and SCDA are now situated in central Newhaven.

The Labour Branch was also able to make a similar donation to Shelter from the profits made from a recent community showing of the documentary film Dispossession at the Hillcrest Centre.
