Basics Bank

“I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine you did for me.” (Matthew ch25 v45)

The Basics bank is charity organisation which provides food, clothing, toiletries and blankets to many people in crisis. Swanmore methodist church supports the Fareham & Gosport dividion which in the last 12 months have provided over 500 food parcels to more than 1,100 people. As a church, two of our members help out at the distribution centre and there is a collection box in the foyer where items can be donated. This is taken about every 10 days. Full details of the charity and its work can be found by clicking on the link to their website below.
