Food Bank

In partnership with Alvaston Churches Together, the local Sure Start Centre and Fareshare, St Mary’s has a dedicated team of volunteers who collect, sort and help distribute food and basic toiletries every week, to referred families who have children under the age of five.

If you would like to donate food or toiletries they can be dropped off at St Mary’s, Boulton Lane.
