St Mary’s Monxton supports the Andover Foodbank throughout the year and especially at Harvest time when we try to make an extra effort to help those in our area who are in need.
There is a collection box at the west end of the church and donations of non-perishable food such as tinned meat, fish, fruit or vegetables, long-life milk or fruit juice and pasta are always welcome. The box is checked every day. Alternatively, we will gladly collect items from you if that is more convenient.

This year St. Mary’s Church, Monxton, will be making up Christmas shoeboxes for distribution by Andover Foodbank.
Last year Andover Foodbank distributed more than 650 Christmas gift boxes to local children. These are some of the comments received by the Foodbank.
“Shortage of money and anxiety make it very difficult at Christmas. The shoe boxes were a huge help and had such lovely things in them that it made Christmas for us.”
“Like all parents we want to try and make Christmas as special as we can. Without your kind donations this just wouldn’t be possible, it’s such a great feeling knowing my kids will have presents to open.”
“Not only have you provided a physical gift but happiness and a much-needed morale boost that money cannot buy.” – Children’s Services
If you would like to make up a whole shoebox or donate some items, then we can provide you with a list of different age groups and examples of what to pack. We also have a limited supply of empty shoeboxes.
If you would like to join with us then please contact Charmian on 710221 or Valerie on 772030 for more information.
We will be delivering our shoeboxes to the Foodbank on Friday 10th November.
Alternatively, you may wish to donate cash online at https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/andoverfoodbank
