The Hope Church, which is situated on Grove Road in Rotherham has been subjected to a break in. The church, which runs a foodbank for families living in poverty, has been ransacked. The foodbank has been destroyed and will be closed for a few days while volunteers repair the damage and clean up.
When the foodbank re-opens there is likely to be a backlog of people in need of its support and a shortage of food due to the theft.
UNISON asks to you to make a donation of a non-perishable item(s) of food such as tinned or packet foods (pasta, rice etc). Any donations can be brought to the UNISON branch office and we will pass them on to the foodbank. Alternatively you can drop them off at the Hope Church on Grove Road.
The foodbank is a vital resource for some of the most vulnerable in our community and we hope you will be able to support this appeal.
