During the COVID-19 pandemic we began adding to the food parcels art and craft bags for the children. These proved very popular and helped parents with homeschooling. We continue to supply these where there is a need. We are most grateful for donations of new colouring pens/books/sticker books/ activity books and reading books.
Donations of money are very welcome to ensure we can continue to provide a food bank and top up supplies. Cash, Cheques (payable to The Thomas Project) or online here www.give.net/20208681
We have a wonderful team of volunteers who work in our Food Bank all year round. They were there during the COVID-19 pandemic which was a very busy time for us.
