Gatehouse foodbank Bury St Edmunds

David Burr is proud to be supporting Gatehouse Foodbank in Bury St Edmunds this Christmas, to provide for those in need.

The foodbank helps people who are struggling financially this Christmas by providing food parcels, ensuring they won’t go hungry.

David Burr is helping by providing a place for the public to drop off non-perishable foods, which we’ll then pass on to the foodbank. If you want to contribute, simply pop-in to one of our offices with your donations before Thursday 19th December.

The charity expects to hand out around 500 food parcels this month, a five per cent increase on last year. Each food parcel will last an average family for a week.

If you can help by donating cans or dried food items from the list below, you’ll be making a world of difference.
