In anticipation of the highest ever demand for its services, Hounslow FoodBox has launched its its Christmas campaign – Remember November.

During this month the FoodBox has set the ambitious target of raising £11,000 – representing the 11th month of the year – to provide funds to meet increasing need for food, toiletries and household items.

Volunteers are distributing posters and leaflets throughout the borough which they hope will encourage people to donate either via its Just Giving page or by scanning the QR code on the leaflets.

Hounslow Community FoodBox supports local residents in a time of need with essential food supplies. Whilst emergency food can’t solve poverty, it can provide a lifeline while other issues in people’s lives are being addressed.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chNovember 4, 2022. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
