Food Donations for Azalea, one of our Charity Partners. 38% of women caught up in sexual exploitation in Luton show signs of malnutrition. Azalea’s stocks are low and they urgently need tinned soup, baked beans, tinned fish or meat, tinned fruit (all with ring-pulls), tea bags and small boxes of cereal. If you would be so kind to bring in any of these items, there will be a box marked “Azalea” at the back of church in June.
