St. John's Carrington Food Bank
As we are unable to continue with our Community Cafe for the moment, we are creating a foodbank aimed at providing food for families in need - no questions asked.
Do get in touch with us if you would like to make use of this facility. Contact Susi Artis on: 07903 115 327
Carrington Community Support Group
A group run by local residents wanting to support the local community in this time of COVID.
In these uncertain times, the group wants to ensure can access support if needed. They are not affiliated with any group and they do not want anything in return.
The group can help with:
- Food shopping
- Picking up prescriptions
- A friendly phone call
- Posting mail
Get in touch with them by calling or texting: 07377 251 735
NB: This is a group run by local residents, not St. John's Carrington.
Our neighbours at St. Martin's Sherwood have teamed up with the Crimson Tree to set up 'Nourish Sherwood', a weekly provision of free, freshly prepared food for those who, for whatever reason, need some help at the moment. They will be providing take away hot meals every Monday at Crimson Tree between 3.15pm to 4.30pm. All staff are volunteers and no monies will be used for anything other than food and packaging.
