Food Pantry at the back of the church is open to EVERYONE on
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8am until 6pm
This Pantry is kindly supported by the parishioners of St Bonaventure’s Church and the residents of Egerton Road and the surrounding community.


As the new school year gets properly underway, we know that many of you will be struggling with the usual stresses and strains: the rushing around, the expensive uniforms, making sure the children get up and out of the door on time. On top of all this, some families will also be battling with food poverty and will be trying to ensure their children are getting enough to eat.

That’s where the Community Food Pantry can help – but at the moment, we’re finding our shelves are almost bare at the end of each day. Please consider donating: your support is essential to allow us to help struggling families this Autumn.

A big thank you to our volunteers Sue and Richard, who did an extra top-up shop last week when we ran very low on essentials. Your kindness is much appreciated!


Please donate:




Other tinned fish





Sanitary towels



Please DO NOT donate:

Fresh food (we can’t safely store it and it will go to waste)


Where do I leave food donations?

Please put food donations either in the clear box labelled “Community Food Pantry Donation Box” at the back of the church or in the box outside the front door of the Presbytery.

How do I donate money?

There is a “Food Pantry” button on the Donation Point inside the church if you would like to make monetary donations by card. Or you can give cash to Mgr Massey or put it in an envelope through Jenny Glester’s door at 57 Egerton Road.

Thank you all for your support!
