Covid appeal for Foodbank

Santa Float Food collection 2020

It’s clearly not Christmas yet but for some members of our community the Santa Float can’t come quickly enough!

During this challenging time, the St Albans District Food bank has supported an increased amount of people in the St Albans District. As a result, their reserves are depleted and have therefore asked St Albans Round Table if we can help – and we gladly want to do so!

We have mobilised our iconic Santa Float, dressed it up for the occasion and are getting ready for your donations for this incredibly important cause.

You can follow us live on this website. Please leave your donation by your doorstep or the end of your drive for our team to be able to pick it up easily. In a bag or a box will be ideal. Remember social distancing.

Yes we will, and anything we collect will go to the St Albans and District Foodbank. However, we need to ensure social distancing is maintained. This means we will have donation buckets mounted on the side of the float and you can drop any donations there (please know that the Sant Float may be moving, so please keep yourself safe).

We are also trying to allow you to make contactless donations via card readers.

If you live in the area and your street is not on our route but want to donate you may still be able to donate. If you are able to carry your donations, you can track us online and come and meet the Float as we go round. We will be delighted to receive your donations! Please ensure that you are safe and that you are maintaining social distancing at all times.

You can track us live on our website so you can see when we are near you. Rumour has it that we may also play some music so you may just be able to hear us as we go round your area…

This is a shame but the St Albans and District Foodbank would love your donations. You can donate online or bring your donations to one of the drop-off points for the Foodbank at the times listed on their website. You can find this here https://stalbansdistrict.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/
