Charities we support

 
 
 

Sunderland Food Bank 

We are a collection point for the Sunderland Foodbank. We don’t distribute the food ourselves but take our monthly collections of food to the main centre in the city. If you would like to donate any non perishable items to the food bank and support this vital work then a collection box is always in the main lobby of the church.
