National Lottery Community Fund

21st January 2024


Oswestry and Borders Foodbank are pleased to announce that in November 2023 they received a grant from the Cost of Living Community Fund (National Lottery). £40,000 has been awarded and allocated towards the cost of food purchases over the coming months.

The fund was set up specifically for established charities who need funds to help them to remain in a healthy position through the winter, which many are predicting will be the toughest one yet for those households struggling to manage.  At present, the Foodbank spends in excess of £50,000 a year on food over and above what is donated. It is fantastic that the Community Fund have chosen to support Oswestry and Borders Foodbank, ensuring that the needs of local people will continue to be met.
