We know that families can find themselves at crisis point for a variety of reasons and with the current pandemic adding extra stress and pressure, finances can be tight. If you find yourself struggling to put food on the table, please do speak with us as we are able to issue you with a voucher for local food banks. Call the office on 01202 426696 to speak to Mrs Goode, or email kate.goode@stjamescebournemouth.com
