"A MASSIVE thank you to Pontleland Primary School!! I had a lovely morning speaking to 2 classes about the work of Tin On A Wall and why food donations are so critical for many charities and community groups in this very tough economic climate. Lots of things we chatted about related to books they'd been studying, falling on hard times and homelessness. I left with 33.85kg they'd collected for me to take away to Cedarwood Trust. Thanks kids, it's was a joy to meet you all and thank you!"

"Tin On A Wall provides vital support to our Food Pantry in
Longbenton which is open every Friday between 11am and 2pm at the Oxford
The majority of our visitors are experiencing some sort of crisis whether this be homelessness, domestic violence or trying to make ends meet on a zero hours contract paying minimum wage. With the recent rise in home energy costs we are experiencing an increase in demand with the pantry now supporting 50-60 families per week. Our approach is non judgemental, friendly and caring and we offer support with benefits, budgeting and job search to compliment the pantry food service. We are one of the smallest food poverty support projects in North Tyneside and our work is low key and often forgotten about.
We would like to thank the amazing team at Tin On A Wall and all the super generous people across our borough who are helping out to those who are struggling."

"This was the first time picking up from Tin On A Wall for us at NiteBite. The volunteers we met were cheerful even though we were doing everything in the rain! It was very exciting collecting everything, fitting it in the car and dropping it all at church. Then came the mammoth task of sorting and putting away. We were especially grateful for the Breakfast Foods, we’ve not had in abundance for some time. Thank you everyone for all you are doing."

"The MEM runs a foodbank every week and we take donations from the general public and we purchase food from Fareshare which we also donate to our foodbank. We have 30 people that regulary pick up food from us. These vary from people that are struggling on universal credit people who have more complex needs. We also have some asylum seekers that we support. Our food bank stocks were incredibly low last week. In fact, in truth we would have struggled to fill enough bags for people.do you know a charity or community group
Thanks to the amazing Tin On The Wall we had more than enough to continue to help our patrons that are struggling. Joanne and her team filled my little van to the gunnels. It was amazing and I can't thank you enought for all for the food you collected and donated. There was some very happy faces today when we delivered our parcels. Thank you so much Joanne and all your helpers. You do an amazing job."
