Northern Devon Christmas Fund is a separate ring-fenced account to support local families in Northern Devon & Torridge that are in longer term need beyond the short term services provided by local foodbanks. These Families are referred to the fund by frontline professionals and issued with supermarket vouchers. Families with children have priority.
Northern Devon Christmas Fund established in 1990 and has provided support for nearly 3000 families.
All funds collected are used directly for supermarket vouchers for Christmas; there are no management costs; the fund is run by volunteers. The vouchers cannot be spent on alcohol, tobacco or lottery tickets.
Northern Devon Christmas Fund is administered by the Nothern Devon Foodbank. Registered Charity in England & Wales. Charity No: 1162651
Last year, the Christmas Fund provided for 159 households across the Northern Devon and Torridge areas. Included in this were 303 children.
We distributed £6,705.00 but had to restrict some support for lack of funds.
