Tremendous response from BPV staff

Thank you very much to all who donated items to the PCS Christmas food bank appeal. This is the fourth time we have collected for Storehouse and the generosity of everyone once again has been overwhelming - this is the largest collection yet. Many thanks to those of you who donated simply thanks vouchers, we received £90 worth which we spent in Iceland on food. Your support as ever is very much appreciated.

Foodbank usage is on the increase so for the 4th consecutive year (5th collection) PCS Union will be collecting food to donate to a local food bank.

The Trussel Trust reports that for the six months from April to September 2016 show they distributed more than ½ million food parcels to people in crisis - over 188,500 to children.

This year we will be supporting Gateshead Foodbank. Gateshead Foodbank will provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis.

Want to clear out that garage or cluttered loftspace?

Why not join the Freecycle network.

It is easy to set up and could save you a trip to the tip as well as helping out your environment.
