Foodbank Drive

Over the past month, we’ve built an amazing community, offering support, empathy and kindness to one another.

However, these are challenging times and some have been particularly badly affected, especially foodbanks who are currently urgently in need of donations.

While we appreciate that things are difficult for many, we’d like to appeal to Southside Self-Isolation Support members to support such organisations if at all possible.
