Bring us some figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer

Some people in Notting Hill really struggle to afford enough food at this time of year and you can help them a bit by dropping a bag of food at the Dalgarno Community Centre Food Bank. Most in demand are jars of coffee, tins of sardines and tuna and also tins of meat like Spam. Long life milk is also a good one to take. Also on the list is pasta sauce, washing-up liquid, tinned soup, baked beans and biscuits

The centre is on the Dalgarno Estate, off Dalgarno Gardens up Sutton Road (look for the blue oval signs) and it’s open from 10am – 5 pm. Local businesses have been helping too and Pam, volunteer manager of the Food Bank, says: “These donations are making a real difference in people’s lives. After coming here, people are uplifted and leave the centre with smiles and hope on their faces.”

There’s another Food Bank just of Kensington High Street at the Dad’s House charity based in the United Reform Church on Allen St, open every Friday 6pm – 7.30pm. You can get in touch with Dad’s House directly to arrange pick up at different times. dadshouse
