Help Azalea stock up before the summer holiday lull!
One of Azalea's main services to women caught in sexual exploitation is to provide them with food.
Because of poverty and the effect of drugs, the women coming to Drop-in do not eat regularly.
For some, Azalea's meals are the only food they eat - our food cupboard has been a lifeline for them. Many of the women are underweight and are only allowed to visit Azalea in order to collect food (by a partner or pimp).
We like to have a cupboard stocked full so that when women come to the Drop-in they can take the food they need for the next few days.
But typically over the summer, we run low on stocks, because many people are away on holiday.
This year, we are appealing for extra donations before the summer slump! Can you help?
The women who visit Azalea don't typically go on holiday, and we are as busy as ever during July and August. Scroll down for a list of items...
What we need and how to deliver
Please drop off any donations at our office at 3A Upper George Street between 9am and 4pm every weekday - do call 01582 733 200 to arrange beforehand.
These are the items that are most in demand (with a long use-by date please):
- Pot noodles and flavoured noodles
- Packets of flavoured pasta
- Microwaveable rice / flavoured cous cous
- Jars of sauce e.g. pasta sauce, curry sauce

- Cereals - ideally small / medium boxes

We also have a freezer full of frozen meals, as the women rarely eat home cooked, nutritious food. If you can cook meals on a regular basis, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
