The Eastleigh Basics Bank is marking a decade of helping local residents in financial difficulty by saying a ‘Big Thank You’ to the many people who have provided support over the years – and helped them give out enough food to feed 25,000 people for one week since opening in 2011.

Chairman Dan Brain said:

‘We’re so grateful to the many people and organisations who have contributed to the Eastleigh Basics Bank over the last ten years – from volunteering and fundraising, through to regularly donating a few items from their weekly shop. We are so proud of our community and what we have achieved together we just wanted to say a big thank you.’

The Big Thank You involves local businesses, schools and churches displaying banners and posters, and a leaflet drop to local residents.
