New Temporary Premises for Basingstoke Foodbank

22nd May 2020

Thanks to the generosity of one of Basingstoke’s key businesses, the Foodbank is relocating to new premises.  Vivid Homes is renting warehouse premises at Houndmills to the Foodbank for six months, rent-free.

“This is an amazingly generous offer by Vivid” says Chair of Trustees Phil Thomas.  “We are now open five days a week and the extra space these new premises provide will make it so much easier for our volunteers to observe social distancing while preparing food parcels.  Keeping a safe distance from one another has been a real challenge to date”.

The move to the new site at Tempus Business Centre will take place over the Bank Holiday weekend with the help of personnel from RAF Odiham.
