We are pleased to be working in partnership with a number of community andfaith groups, to bring a Food Bank to Bassetlaw. BFB, as it is known, now has a coordinator, Paula Howard who can be contacted on;

BFB will help people who find themselves in difficulty, by providing nutritional food, toiletries and other goods. The last few months have been really busy but rewarding, there is a lot of commitment from a host of volunteers in Worksop and Retford.
