Foodbank loses Bury Asda donation point
Community charity Gatehouse will no longer have a foodbank collection point in Bury St Edmunds Asda.
It was one of the foodbank’s first collection points when it began four years ago and Gatehouse still hopes to do manned collections there.
Gatehouse chief executive Amanda Bloomfield said: “We would like to thank all those who have supported us with donating about 4,000kg of food which helped over 2,000 families and individuals.
“It is a great disappointment that we are to lose this facility as it helped keep the foodbank ticking over.”
People can still donate food at Gatehouse in Dettingen Way from 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday and at Waitrose and the Risbygate Street co-op, though they have enough cereals and pasta.
