 Deodorant

 Toilet Paper

 Shower Gel

 Shampoo

 Soap

 Nappies

 Baby Wipes

All items collected will be sent to Banbury’s food bank.

Speaking of the Tibbetts Group’s charitable efforts, managing director Jonathan Tibbetts said: “Every year, for a number of years, the Tibbetts Angels have put together hundreds of parcels for local charities, supporting BYHP, The Salvation Army and Home Start.

"This year, with Covid-19 in mind, the team across the Tibbetts Group wanted to make that extra step in helping community food banks, who have witnessed an increase in demand throughout 2020.

“Not only are the Tibbetts Team donating items which will greatly help those in need, the team are also fundraising through weekly socially distanced, Covid-19 friendly raffles, with every single penny raised going to Banbury’s food bank.

"As well as Tibbetts staff, families and local businesses donating items to our local food bank appeal, the Tibbetts Angels are extending the invitation to locals throughout Banbury and surrounding villages to donate items to those who are in need.

"If you would like to donate, please drop-off your items outside Tibbetts House, located on Beaumont Road, or if you would like to find-out more, please call 01295 257 010."
