Success stories

Last year, New Tupton Evangelical Church Food Bank were successful in applying for a Community Action Grant to re-stock the foodbank and offer free coffee mornings for local residents to address social isolation and provide support to improve the health & wellbeing of those in need within the local community.

Project lead, Sylvia Tidmarsh, said, "The grant we received from North East Derbyshire District Council for our foodbank was a great help. Because of Covid-19 and having to close for 6 months, we needed to replenish the food. We then opened again and gave out food parcels to those in need. I would like to say a big thank-you."
