Free Bread!

News on 6 Jul , 2018

We’re very grateful to Baynes Bakery for weekly donations of bread and other baked goods that haven’t sold in their shops but are still perfectly edible.

These items are now available during the Clothing Swap Shop which is open in the West Hall on Fridays between 12 and 1pm.

We’re still looking for volunteers to staff the swap shop on Mondays and Fridays (we already have enough volunteers for the Tuesdays). You will need to help sort clothes, make sure the rails are stocked, weigh donations and the items that people take away and chat to people. If you’re interested, please contact Juliet on 552 3033 or email juliet@grantongoesgreener.org.uk.
