Manningtree and District Food Bank 

We were able to help over 120 households this year with a Christmas ‘pack’, and this was only possible because of the unfailing generosity of so many people in our community recently, and during the past year. Our local Churches and schools have all contributed together with Rose Builders and their clients, a number of […]
