Oaklands Care Home supports the local food bank
Staff at Oaklands Care Home, in Scole, praised residents’ families and villagers for supporting their food bank appeal.
Throughout the month of October the Kingsley Healthcare home in Norwich Road has been collecting a variety of basic food to support the local food bank. And on October 31, deputy manager Jason Gidden and activities coordinator Becky Mitchell dressed appropriately for Halloween to hand over their collection at Hope Church, in Diss, the drop-off point for Waveney Foodbank.
Home manager Amanda Baker said: “We were discussing how the inflation rate is affecting everyone, even those in work, and decided to do our little bit to help. Staff delivered leaflets and put up posters locally inviting people to contribute. We collected lots of the most needed items which include cereal, soup, pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes, pasta sauce, lentils, beans and pulses, tinned meat and tinned vegetables.”
