We need your help at the National Tesco Collection!

25th October 2018

Can you volunteer at our collection on Clapham South Side from November 29 – December 1?

*If you have volunteered to help on the Friday or Saturday, please email the Foodbank at info@claphampark.foodbank.org.uk and we will send you guidelines and info*

Last year, we were blown away by your support at our November food collection at Tesco, Clapham South Side. Over two days of collections in the run-up to Christmas 2017, we managed to gather an incredible 441.15 kg of donations!

This year, we need your help again – as we’re hoping to go above and beyond our totals from last year. It’s a sad fact that many people in our community will struggle to make ends meet this winter, and we want to make sure that they get the support they need.

Figures released in our September newsletter show that demand on our Foodbank is only increasing. Currently, we are meeting a record number of referrals, and we urgently need donations to continue to help those in crisis.

How you can help

We need volunteers to man our collection stalls from Thursday 29 November to Saturday 1 December at Tesco on Clapham Common South Side. This will involve passing out our shopping lists to Tesco customers and thanking donors for their generous support. You can sign up for hour long slots on our Doodle poll here. 

If you can’t make it to volunteer, please consider donating food during our Tesco collection. If you can’t make it to Tesco on these dates, you can donate food in the following ways. 

We have a range of voluntary opportunities available, find out more here. 

If you’re in trouble, we can help. Find out how we can support you.
