Venture Taxis


Venture Taxis supporting Mexborough FoodbankHuge thanks to Venture Taxis for their latest donation dropped off yesterday!

This ongoing support is much needed as our team of volunteers continue to provide an increasing number of food parcels across Mexborough, Denaby, Conisbrough & the Dearne Valley.

You can donate to support our cause by tipping the drivers or buying additional tins/packets of food as you use their excellent taxi service to/from local supermarkets and they will pass on at the next donation drop-off.


Mexborough Foodbank

Huge thanks to Donney European Ltd for another fantastic donation of various ambient foods from noodles to lion bars and tins of ham to chocolate goodies! Plenty of pea and bacon flavoured instant noodles…as we mean PLENTY as you can see from the photos!

Also to Lee Kirk for dropping off another fab donation of food and toiletries courtesy of the generous residents on Melton View Estate.

And more donations of household / white goods collected by our team – another electric cooker, very large TV, new single mattress, hoover, kettle & toaster etc which will be great for some of our local families.
