Newmarket Open Door

20th November 2020
Newmarket Open Door Community Pop-Up Shop
 
Many of you will remember that we have supported the food bank at Newmarket Open Door for many years. They have launched a Community Pop-Up Shop at The Racing Centre in Fred Archer Way every Thursday at 11.00am.
 
There are no qualifying criteria – everyone is welcome – with a range of food and other household items available every week. You pay a charge of £2 at the door for a large jute bag, then move along the (socially distanced) queue and help yourself to the items available, laid out on the tables; staple foods like pasta, rice, beans, tinned meat as well as fresh bread, fruit and vegetables are available, as well as sanitary products like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, tampons and sanitary towels (maximum 2 of any item).
 
They are there every week for you, without the need to fill in forms or for any type of referral, if you would find this helpful in these challenging times. Click here for more information, or telephone (01638) 561711 / 600699. Similarly, please speak to us in confidence if you are experiencing financial difficulties – we are involved with other community projects such as Bridging the Gap who have already supported a number of our families.
