Watford & Three Rivers Refugee Partnership – NEXT COLLECTION 2nd JULY. Message from Mick Hayter (WTRRP Volunteer): Many thanks to you all for the generous donation of food and toiletries you continue to give. This is really appreciated and our clients often say that they wouldn’t get such support in their home country. The number of clients we help continues to grow. We are now giving out about 42 food boxes a month. These have a value of between £25 – £50 depending on family size. During the period April 2016 to March 2017 we gave out almost 7 tonnes of food so there is a real continuing need for your donations. Your support and interest in our work is greatly valued. Currently, our real need is for pasta sauce, tinned tomatoes, sweetcorn, breakfast tea (40 bag size), coffee (100g size). No soup or baked beans, please!
