UK Registered Charity No.1150170
In December 2013 we issued 80 food parcels supporting 197 clients, 88 of these were children. We processed over 80 referrals working with local agencies and supplied over 300 Christmas parcels to those in need plus Christmas lunch items to local support organisation. Basics Bank stock soon goes out the door and we continue to need donations on a regular basis.

Tony Miles runs for the bank

When I began running very tentatively at the age of 61, in an attempt to get fitter and lose a bit of weight, I had no intention whatsoever of running further than a few miles at a time.
However, just 6 years later I found myself on Blackheath Common at the start of the 2013 Virgin London Marathon, my fifth attempt at this distance, having already competed in the New Forest and Paris.

New Forest Basics Bank is open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
from 10am to 12 Noon

An added incentive this time was that I was raising funds for the New Forest Basics Bank and proudly wearing their logo on my shirt. In fact, I even heard a spectator remark "That's in Lymington!", as I ran by. It was amazing that I heard this at all, as the noise from the huge crowds lining the route was unbelievable. Running through Canary Wharf, with the volume of sound amplified by the immense buildings on either side, was an experience I shall never forget.

Now for the statistics. Despite finding the last few miles very tough indeed, I completed the course in 4 hours 41 minutes, but more importantly, thanks to the generosity of family, friends and local people, I was able to raise approximately 1000 for the Basics Bank. A big "thank you" to everyone who supported me, every penny of your donations will be put to very good use.

WELL DONE, TONY.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! AND A BIG THANK YOU TO CHRISTINE AND THE FAMILY.
