Lincoln Community Larder opens in Wragby

Lincoln Community Larder opens in Wragby

A new Lincoln Community Larder food bank service has been set up to help those in Wragby and surrounding villages who are in need of food and supplies.

The Wragby food bank service is run by a group of volunteers from the community and Eric Sergeant, who helps to co-ordinate it, explains why it was launched. “It started as a church initiative where people donated and collected what they wanted from the church and now the building is open again this continues. However, as demand rose a more formal approach was needed and we launched the Wragby outreach earlier this summer.

“My daughter is involved with the Martin outreach and during the Covid-19 pandemic, the larder has generally seen an uplift in new referrals, with delays in Universal Credit payments coming through and people losing jobs or living on reduced incomes,” he says.

“We operate within a five mile radius of Wragby and both collections and deliveries take place each Tuesday,” adds Eric.

Lincoln Community Larder Chairman, Alan Wilson, said, “Our policy has always been to give immediate help to those in need and the opening of a local distribution site in Wragby will enable more people in rural communities to access our services. We thank the Wragby team for their efforts in helping those in what’s been a tough 18 months.”

The Lincoln Community Larder is an independent registered charity, run entirely by volunteers, and has been helping local people in crisis for over 30 years.
