food donations

The Curry Rivel Food Bank is receiving donations at the URC in Wiltown on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 12 noon to 1 pm. All non-perishables are welcome but in particular tins of Stew, Ham, corned beef, tinned pies.
Rice pudding, custard, Jars of jam and marmalade.

The Curry Rivel Community Support Group was set up to try to help those in our community who may be feeling most vulnerable at this challenging time.

It has come to our notice, that there may be some in our community who may find the coming weeks financially difficult and who may need assistance with food and other necessary provisions.

We have, therefore, sought to put in place a temporary food bank arrangement in the village. We are inviting those who feel able and willing to donate tins and other provisions (we shall publicise the exact nature of items on this website) to attend at the United Reform Church going forward on either Wednesday or Saturday between 12 noon and 1 pm. Items will be taken from you (observing social distancing and Government guidelines of course) and then parcels will be made up and distributed by our volunteers to those in need.

The first donation opportunity will be this Wednesday 22nd April at the URC between 12 noon and 1 pm. Please do come and donate food and other essentials if you feel able.

If you are someone who would benefit from a delivery in this way, please email in confidence to: or telephone the dedicated number (07716792760). Appropriate arrangements can then be made direct with you by our group administrator Carenza Hewitt.

All contact will be in the strictest confidence and all data will be destroyed once this emergency situation is over.

The CRCSG would also wish to confirm that this scheme has been set up with the support of the Parish Council and in liaison with those in our community who have helped for some time in this way.

Thank you in advance for your support.
