We are heartbroken at the news of our project manager Jacqui Griffiths passing away last weekend. Jacqui’s selfless spirit and dedication to helping people in crisis has been a beacon of light and hope for everyone in our community – and it is a legacy that will live on through our work.
You will be aware that we paused our service this week to support our volunteers during this challenging time and to reorganise our services so that we can continue to support people who cannot afford food in the most effective and appropriate way. We will be reopening from Monday and would request that all referrals are made through our new telephone number 07990 264008.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jacqui’s family at this time and with her many friends and colleagues and with the local Salvation Army Corps in Norton.
Rev Malcolm Dyer,
Chair of Ryedale Foodbank Steering Group.
