Metro Bank’s Swindon store is collecting food donations in store to help support The Harbour Project.

The bank decided to support the local charity as part of its Christmas Community Campaign.

The Harbour Project aims to be a family for every individual who seeks asylum or is granted refugee status in Swindon, and to help them to rebuild their lives.

Swindon people and businesses can donate some of the items the charity urgently needs including tea bags, coffee, biscuits, tinned tomatoes, cooking oil, basmati rice, cereal as well as shampoo, conditioner and deodorant, shower gel, toothbrush and toothpaste, washing up liquid and washing powder at the bank's Regent Street branch.

“As a community bank we want to really help those most in need this Christmas and spread the warmth this winter,” said Swindon Metro Bank Local Director, Joe McGowan.  

“We would encourage everyone to give a little this Christmas – even one tin can make a difference. I want to thank everyone in advance for their generous support.”

The branch at 1-4 Regent Street is open Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 6pm and on Sundays from 11am to 5pm.
