Christmas Parish Foodbank Collection

at the Cathedral

4th/5th Decemberfoodbank


On the weekend of 4th/5th December we will be holding our parish Christmas collection for the Brentwood Foodbank.


We think that the following Seasonal Items would be particularly welcome:

Christmas Cake, Biscuits, Chocolates, Jellys, Sweets, Custard, Crackers, Pickles, Puddings, Selection Boxes, Advent Calendars for children, Gifts for Children (colouring books, pencils etc) as well as Cheese Biscuits, Crisps etc


Items always urgently needed are

tinned potatoes custard


Other items that would be greatly appreciated are

meat pies (tinned) instant mash rice
rice pudding pasta bake sauce tinned salmon
large tins of peas/carrots cartons of long-life milk cartons of long-life juice
shampoo/conditioner toothpaste and toothbrushes razors
deodorant washing powder all types of cleaning products


In order to maintain social distance, we will arrange for a collection point to be in the car park at each Mass; a representative will be there with the car boot open so that donations can be placed directly in the car, from where they will be delivered directly to the collection centre.


For those who prefer to donate money (cash or cheques) there will also be a collection box in the narthex. Please make cheques payable to ‘Brentwood Foodbank’.


Please remember those who are most in need. Your generosity will help make a real difference to those struggling and hurting in these challenging times.


Just one of the cars, loaded and ready to go
