From a very simple idea: Tin in a Bin network continues to grow


An update from the Tin in a Bin network: “We’re still supporting Redbridge Foodbank, but as they’re short on storage space, we tend only to supply things they ask us for.”

“We also support another nine organisations. We have a partnership with Forest School, who run Foodbank Fridays, and we’ve received donations from Wanstead Church School as well. Plus, we continue to have great support via our 60 or so collection points. And all from a very simple idea started by Julie Harvey,” said James Paterson.

The Tin in a Bin network is based at St Mary’s Church, Wanstead, where donations can be made on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.
