This year we have partnered with local charity Encompass to support those facing poverty, homelessness and addiction. Rushden Lakes will be a donation point between 14th November & 22nd December 2022. We are kindly asking our visitors to donate non perishable food and household goods that we will then take to the Rushden and Higham food bank. These items are added to parcels and given to those in crisis or poverty. Encompass also have food banks in Raunds and Thrapston and anything we receive will be shared with them as needed too.
Non perishable/tinned items
Vegetables (Carrots, sweetcorn, peas)

‘Our vision is to create a community where vulnerable and deprived people thrive. We want to empower and support individuals to live independent and fulfilled lives.’
In addition to food banks Encompass offers many services including homeless accommodation, residential rehabilitation, support with attending appointments, acting as an advocate, invitations to their money courses, signposting to other agencies or simply providing advice and a listening ear.
All items are gratefully received and we thank you for your support.
