On 24th Nov 2022, members of Rumburgh Morris met Matthew Scade from Waveney Foodbank at the Rumburgh Buck Public House to present a cheque. The donation of £650 was raised during their summer season of Morris dancing.

It is based in the village of Rumburgh, Suffolk, with The Buck as headquarters, although practice sessions are held in the village hall at St. Margaret South Elmham on Tuesday evenings starting at 7:45pm. New dancers or musicians are always welcome.

Waveney foodbank which is a local charity, offers 3 days emergency food to anyone living in food crisis, they have 11 distribution centres which cover North and Mid Suffolk and South Norfolk along with East Suffolk. They also provide a local delivery service for those unable to travel, Waveney foodbank work closely with a network of local and national care agencies who identify those in need. 

Rumburgh Morris is pleased to make a contribution to the Foodbank in these testing times.

Matthew Scade, project manager for Waveney foodbank added

“We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis.

Already this year we’ve seen 44% more people walk through our doors asking for assistance.

With energy bills increasing and food costing more, Christmas this year will be another expense that many people cannot afford, we would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Rumburgh Morris, this donation will help us ensure that adults and children alike will have a Christmas to remember for the right reasons, and  more importantly without having to choose between food or fuel”.
