Morrisons are generously donating £1,000 worth of food per week to Benfleet Community Helpers but they need more if the service is to be sustained. If you are able to help by making a monetary donation then that would be very useful. A Paypal ‘Pool’ has been set up for a Benfleet Community Helpers Fund to which donations can be made. You do not need to have a PayPal account to donate. The link is as follows:
