Seahaven Storehouse

Rotary Club members from Seaford and Martello Rotary Clubs provided additional Christmas boxes to the Seahaven Storehouse food bank to add a little Christmas extra to the weekly basic food bags handed out to regular families attending the food bank on the run up to Christmas.
Rodney Reed from Martello Rotary Club and Mike Ogilvie purchased and collected the bulk items from Morrisons Seaford supermarket, who were pleased to provide the items under their community discount scheme. Items in the Christmas boxes included a Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, tinned custard, snacks and sweets. Costs were split 50/50 split between the two clubs.
The boxes were packed and wrapped at St James Trust, who had kindly offered temporary space to store them. Fifty boxes were prepared by the two Rotary Clubs and Kings Church members. From Seaford Rotary Club, Rotarians Ann Reed and Mike Ogilvie helped with the wrapping and packing.
On the final food bank day before Christmas, the boxes were handed over to food bank staff for distribution, together with double the amount of food bags, to cover the extended Christmas period. Due to the combined weight of bags and boxes, the members of the Rotary Clubs and Kings Church provided transport to help deliver the boxes and bags to local addresses.
