In light of the recent changes that many of us have had to make, we have introduced a trial Pay It Forward initiative for our LCBC Community Pantry which will show the kindness in our fantastic community.
How does this work?
Members of the community can donate £3 for a post-it note to be added to our notice board. This can be either in person at the pantry, or via this page.
A note will be created with your name and message if you wish to include one. Please add this message in the box below. If you prefer to stay anonymous, please state this too.
If you wish to take up an offer, just ask one of our staff or volunteers whilst there. The notes can be used alone for food, non-foods or flowers or as ‘part payment’. As only one person/social bubble is allowed in our pantry where contributions are taken, no one else will be privy to this and we will retain that confidentiality.
We will not ask for any evidence of your financial circumstances. There is no criteria; we truly understand that anyone can fall on hard times and that frequently, it is difficult to make ends meet. We also want users to feel valued by taking advantage of a post it note, and appreciate that there is kindness in this world.
We only ask that you repay this kindness somehow, be that a pay it forward note for someone else, checking on a neighbour, sharing food, or doing another good deed. Your good deed may not seem much, but if everyone did something good for someone else, then the cycle of generosity and kindness can spark us to become better people.
Please see our terms and conditions.

Our cook book contains ninety one savoury and sweet recipes which have been used within our workshops, events and at home. It also has a handy nutrient and measurement conversion table to refer to. I wanted to create a book full of recipes that will be cooked (not just to look at) and made again and again.
Every recipe has been tested and tasted with ingredients that are easy to obtain and inexpensive. Most importantly, the ingredients when consumed are aimed at helping to reduce the risk of many preventative health issues and diseases. Food IS medicine but ultimately must be delicious and enjoyable as after all, it is one of life’s pleasures.
Books can also be collected from:
LCBC Community Pantry at St. Helen’s Parish Hall, DL14 9DL (current days/times – Mondays and Fridays, 10.00am – 12 noon)
Beech Tree Nurseries, Adelaide Bank, Shildon, DL4 1DF, (Mondays to Fridays, 10.00am – 3.00pm, weekends, 10.00am – 1.00pm -01388 772076)
We give sincere thanks to Hope Simpson of https://www.hopecaitlintreasures.com/ who not only shot and arranged the book cover, but pushed to get it published. Please have a look on her website to see an insight to her work.
