Bexhill Rotary Club - Foodbank Update

Report on our club's impact on local Foodbank project

Club members please log in for more information.


Back in the pandemic Honorary Bexhill Rotarian Lynn Langlands (pictured) aided by fellow Bexhill Rotarian Graham Forster decided to get involved with Bexhill Foodbank who were in need of help with donations.

The Foodbank ( started some years ago to provide emergency food and support to people in need in the area. Three years ago, the Foodbank needed help collecting extra donations to satisfy the growing demand, and this is where Bexhill Rotarians came to the rescue. Bexhill Rotarian John Coles who currently heads up the collections said, “This is a really worthwhile project which we are pleased to be involved with.” He added, “Four Rotarians go out every Tuesday collecting donations from around the town, these yield a fantastic volume of consumables both food and household cleaning materials. They are split into two teams, one person driving whilst the other collects the donations, usually around 15 to 20 per run, which are then taken along to the Foodbank.”

Last year Bexhill Rotarians collected donations of around 9,500Kg which just proves that Bexhill Rotary’s involvement is making a huge impact in the overall provision of Foodbank resources for the town. Bexhill Rotarians are often surprised by the generosity of the donors, and also admire all the work done by the volunteers at their base at 19-20 Station Road in Bexhill who sort and collate all the produce for the benefit of those in need.

Donations are always welcome, particularly these days when the rising cost of living is hitting so many, so if you wish to find out more about how you can donate to the Foodbank, email Lynn Langlands –
