Basics Bank is very dependent on your generosity towards us.
Without your help we could not provide for those in the locality who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Where to give items to us
Most places of worship within the New Forest area have crates for you to put your donations in.
There is also a large basket inside the entrance to Waitrose Lymington .
What to give us
Because of the surprisingly high call on our services, we are in need of:
- non-perishable food that is not out of date,
- household consumables and
- money to buy perishables.
Here is a list of the items we are most in need of:
- Meat (ham, corned beef, etc)
- Hot meals (stews, chilli con carne, meatballs etc)
- Potatoes / Rice / Pasta
- Rice pudding
- Coffee (100g jar)
- Sugar (500g pack)
- Milk (UHT) / Powdered Milk

- Meat/fish paste
- Shower gel
- Toilet Rolls
- All-purpose cloths
- Washing-up liquid
- Toilet rolls
Many other items also welcomed!
Please note that if any food is donated to New Forest Basics Bank which it is unable to distribute to its clients, NFBB may donate such food to any other charity or other organisation that carries out similar services.
