Bournes Moves supports Rye local foodbank

Jun 30, 2015
Bournes of Rye has helped its local foodbank by donating unwanted, non-perishable food from its customers.
Bournes is encouraging its customers to donate to the foodbank and making it easy for them to do so by collecting the items on move day and delivering them on their behalf.   

Also, if people who aren’t moving want to donate they can drop their items in to Bournes’ Rye Head Office reception any time during office hours (Monday-Fri, 8.30 to 17.30) and Bournes adds them to its deliveries.

The foodbank in Rye has been set up by the Reverend Simon Earl, supported by an enthusiastic group of people led by Gillian Jarrett and follows foodbank’s opening in Bexhill and Battle under the Trussel Trust umbrella.   The Trussell Trust’s UK foodbank network partners with communities nationwide to launch foodbanks that provide three days of emergency food to men, women and children in crisis.

Many families hit crisis and cannot afford food.  One in five people live in poverty in the UK and in the South East alone over 58,000 adults and 33,000 children were helped by the Trussell Trust foodbanks last year.  For more information visit
