Thank you Allison Palmer

We want to say a big thank you for all you have done over the last few years for Bassetlaw Food Bank.

We really appreciate all your hard work.

Spotlight on… 

We have had a few changes at Bassetlaw Food Bank over the last few months.

Allison Palmer has left us as Co-ordinator to go onto BCVS full time but is still volunteering with us when she can.

Carol Freeman has now been appointed the new Co-ordinator after being a volunteer at Retford for a while then assistant co-ordinator.  She is looking forward to the new challenges and working with all the volunteers at both Worksop and Retford.

Claire Flint has now joined the team as assistant co-ordinator.  She brings new skills to work alongside Carol and help the people of Bassetlaw within the food bank.

Jean Coulson is still the Chair of Bassetlaw Food Bank and we are thankful for all she does for us, along with the rest of the Trustees.

We have a wonderful team of volunteers who help us each week at both the centres in Retford and Worksop and we couldn’t run the food bank without them.

Would you like to join this team of volunteers? Have a look at our facebook and see what we get up to. If yes then please email
