Orpington Metro Bank Appeals for Donations for Local Foodbank this Easter

4th April 2023

Metro Bank’s Orpington store is collecting Easter Egg donations to help support Bromley Borough Foodbank as part of its Easter appeal.

Bromley Borough Foodbank is a local food bank that provides for low income families who are struggling to provide basic food services, in areas surrounding Bromley. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Orpington residents and businesses can donate any size Easter Egg at its Nugent Retail Park store.

“Easter is a highlight for chocolate treats in any kid’s calendar and as a community bank we want to really help everyone be able to celebrate despite the challenging economic times,” explains Orpington Metro Bank Store Manager, Daniel Shade.  “We want to spread that joy by collecting as many Easter Eggs as possible to donate to the community.  Orpington’s generosity has meant we have already received 16 donations and we are hoping to collect at least 30.”

Metro Bank’s Orpington store is located at Unit 4, Nugent Retail Park, Orpington, Bromley, BR5 3RP. The store is open Monday to Saturday: 8.30am to 6pm, Sundays: 11am to 5pm. Metro Bank is also part of the Safe Space scheme – the store is available to anyone experiencing, or at risk of domestic abuse, providing the opportunity to safely call a helpline, support service or loved one.
