Middlecombe Nursery in Congresbury will be hosting a Festive Food and Fundraising Day on Saturday 8th December, serving bratwurst, roasted nuts, mince pies and seasonal hot drinks with all profits raised being donated to The Trussell Trust.

The Trussell Trust is a network of over 420 foodbanks that provide emergency food to people in crisis, by providing three-day food supply parcels, of which they have given out more than 1.34m in the last year alone.

Middlecombe’s fundraising day will also be host to a one-day food donation drop-off, in which they’ll be collecting festive food donations for the Weston-super-Mare Foodbank, specifically with Christmas in mind. At this time of year, the foodbank has requested donations such as gravy granules, stuffing mix, chutneys, Christmas pudding, cakes and savoury crackers.

A list of other non-perishable food items to donate can be found on the Weston Foodbank website: www.wsmfoodbank.org.uk.

“We hope our local community will join us on the 8th December to raise support and awareness for this incredibly important cause,” said Middlecombe.
