This year Seaford Town Council’s offices are accepting donations of new gifts for Seahaven Storehouse to help local families in need this Christmas.

25th November 2021 – From its offices in Church Street, Seaford Town Council is actively helping to support a local Christmas appeal led by Seahaven Storehouse, often known locally as ‘the foodbank’. Donations of new gifts can be left at the offices in Church Street Monday to Friday, 9.30am-4.30pm, which will go to families in need of support that use the foodbank. These will then be distributed alongside food parcels over the Christmas period.

Donations are greatly appreciated and if you are able to pick up an extra small gift whilst doing your shopping, please consider donating one for a local child this Christmas. Seaford has a wonderful array of independent shops where you can have your pick of a huge variety of gifts, while also helping support Seaford’s independent traders who bring so much to the town centre.

Cllr Mark Brown, who is actively involved with the work of Seahaven Storehouse, says: “The Seahaven Storehouse (Seaford Food Bank) located in the Community Church in Vale Road, Seaford offers an invaluable service by providing disadvantaged Seahaven residents with food parcels. The dedicated staff of volunteers are currently supplying approximately 100 food parcels every week of the year. The Storehouse is now collecting suitable toys for distribution to the children of these residents so that they can also have a Very Happy Christmas.”

As well as the Town Council offices in Church Street, other collection points for toy donations are the Co-op in Princess Drive and the Community Church in Vale road (on Thursdays only).

There will be a box left at 37 Church Street in the reception area where toys can be donated (unwrapped, please). This will remain there until 15th December when all toys will be collected, wrapped and distributed.Christmas Toy donations poster with toy soldiers
