Christmas Donations – PATH


We dropped all of the food off at PATH yesterday and they were extremely grateful for the 20 boxes of food and other donations that Churston had put together. We dropped off the food at 4:45pm and there were already a number of people collecting much needed parcels as well as a queue of people waiting for their hot takeaway meals which PATH prepares from donations everyday.

From Christmas Eve until New Year PATH is the only food bank open in Torquay but the need for help doesn’t stop so Cath and the rest of their team pass on many thanks to everyone at Churston. Cath told us how PATH is supporting so many who are on the verge of homelessness and how so many families rely on the support of the food banks and other support charities in Torbay. Cath emphasised how the small donations from individuals mean so much more to those who receive them.

Many young children have never had Santa visit or presents delivered at Christmas because their family can barely provide the bare minimum amount of food to stop their family going hungry. Therefore the donations from Churston will be used to form Christmas hampers, meals and food parcels that will be delivered all over the Christmas and New Year period.

Thank you for helping to organise.
