On behalf of the trustees of the North Guildford Food Bank, I write to thank you for your support for our work and to include a copy of our 2022 Annual Report and Accounts which covers the period 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022.
This year is the 10th anniversary of the formation of the food bank and this was marked with a gathering at St Clare’s Church, Park Barn on 15th October with volunteers, past and present, the Mayor and Mayoress of Guildford, Dennis & Mary Booth, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux and Rev Claire Isherwood who was representing the Bishop and Diocese of Guildford. Over these ten years we have helped hundreds of families and individuals and, specifically, over the two years April 2020 to March 2022 we gave out over 3,500 food parcels (which may comprise 4 to 6 bag loads of food). During that two year period we also gave grants to clients for gas and electricity payments (together with admin charges) of over £45,000, and so far this financial year we have given grants totalling over £32,500.
None of this would have been possible without the generosity of you, our supporters, and we remain most grateful for your concern and kindness and the good wishes you express to us; you not only help the needy but are a great encouragement to our many hardworking volunteers and trustees.
With kind regards,
North Guildford Food Bank
