Loveworks Xmas List

Loveworks Xmas List

The following information was taken from Loveworks website – link here. Loveworks is a Reigate based charity that runs community food-based projects, including foodbanks in Reigate & Merstham, a garden project and a “Cuppa Tea” Club.

“We are still seeing an unprecedented demand on our services and expect it to increase as we head into Lockdown 2.0. Despite fantastic Harvest donations and a really successful ‘drive through’ at Reigate Grammar School, we continue to need more support.

We can accept donations at the following times and venues:

  • Tues & Thurs: 10-12pm – Loveworks, Unit 4, Redhill 23 Business Park, Redhill RH1 2GD  (we can also accept supermarket deliveries here at these times)
  • Tues – Fri: 10am-12 Merstham Hub, Portland Drive, Merstham RH1 3HY
  • Mon-Sat:  Nationwide Building Society, High Street, Reigate

If these times are not convenient or you have a large delivery please call 07912 628013 or email  

There are still a number of Mutual Aid group drop-off points (for updates see their facebook group ‘Reigate & Redhill Covid19 mutual aid). 

We are also able to take cash donations to help us purchase items for specific needs
