The Billericay Foodbank is ready to support people of the town who may struggle to keep warm this winter.

It will offer warm clothing, blankets, and even a heater, to anyone in need.

The Foodbank is generally supported by the town’s churches and also receives donations from non-church organisations and members of the general public.

But this special 'Winter Warmth' initiative is thanks to a grant from the Basildon, Billericay & Wickford Council for Voluntary Service.

if you need help or know of someone who may do so, please contact the Foodbank on 07707 466262. You can also arrange to visit the Foodbank at the Church of St John the Divine in Outwood Common Road on a Tuesday (2 to 4pm).
