Where to drop Foodbank parcels

There's still a chance to help local people in need with a 'reverse advent calendar'.

Foodbank Isle of Man has been running the drive since the end of November - it's encouraging people to collect one item every day to give away in the run-up to Christmas.

They can be non-perishable food, toileteries and homewares.

Boxes of donations should be dropped off by next Tuesday, 20 December.

You can drop your advent calendar off at the following drop-off centres:

  • Noa Bakehouse on Fort Street;
  • The Salvation Army Citadel on Lord Street;
  • and Port Erin Methodist Church.

Foodbank Director Neal Mellon explains who the scheme is designed to help:
