Hi I'm one of the volunteers at Oldham Foodbank,  as you maybe aware we was broken in to over the weekend and the devastation was found by one of charity partners.
The individual /individuals have taken tablets that were used for referrals to the fuel bank to enable those in crisis to receive an emergency payment and for a nationwide surveys into foodbank from Edinburgh university.  They have taken our main hard drive /pc all are password protected . They have obviously ransacked the office and damaged our filing cabinets.  Along side the items we need to replace , they have taken around £200 that was donated over the Christmas period which obviously provides much needed funds for the day to day running  of the foodbank.  Food was taken too,  so we are putting an appeal out for tinned fish, rice pudding, tinned fish , tinned tomatoes and uht milk.
We as a charity can little afford the extra costs incurred to replace the more valuable items and office furniture.  Any donations will be greatly received and used to help to provide the local community in need and crisis.  36014394_1546934999983417_r.jpeg36014394_1546935017480511_r.jpeg36014394_1546935042382088_r.jpegAs stated our original target was £1000 and we have blown away by the generosity of the wider public. I am one of the merry band of volunteers at Oldham Foodbank.  We offer assistance to those in crisis with food parcels for 3 days . As we have smashed our target , extra money raised will be used to enhance our current security systems to prevent ourselves from being targeted again . Furthermore the money raised will secure day to day expenses of the Foodbank for the foreseeable future , enabling us to continue to provide to those in need and crisis. 
All monies raised is to be transferred to Oldham Foodbank bank account which is run by our Trustees.
