During covid and the pandemic, 'Bernie' the Bernwode Community Bus started to collect on behalf of the Vinyard foodbank in order to help with food instability at this very difficult time.

Once the pandemic started to wind down the need has become greater than ever, with rising the rising cost of living, and the end of the furlough scheme the demand on the food bank is growing each and every month.

Bernie has now developed a collection network of drop off points and boxes where food donations can be left. We have a dedicated team of volunteers who collect from all 22 collection points currently on the first Saturday of every month.

But we are keen to grow and we are currently looking for people to help us in the Haddenham area.

All it would require is to find a suitable place for a collection box, either at the village hall, a village pub, bus stop, a local shop – or it can simply be at the end of your drive.

Then all you need to do is help us with promotion locally with posts on this community website of the Haddenham dotNet Facebook page. Then we'll ask you to do is just keep an eye on the box in between collections to ensure the donations are safe.

If you would like to get involved, please drop me an email at: ashley.waite@buckinghamshire.gov.uk

Or message me on 07977 401548.
