Support for charities

Donations to Brixham Food Bank over Christmas

We’re continuing to collect donations for Brixham Food Bank through the Christmas period. Customers can drop their donations into the shop, or make a cash donation which we will convert into fresh fruit and vegetables.

Customers’ donations to local charities – a big thank you

Amidst the current situation, we’re delighted to be able to share an update on the latest charity totals from our customers’ donations.

Our collection boxes have raised over £60 for two of our nominated local charities: Guide Dogs Torbay and Go Beyond (formerly CHICKS).

With our customers’ support, we also continue to make weekly donations of up to £100 worth of fresh fruit, vegetables and groceries to Brixham Food Bank.

We would like to pass on a huge thank you to all of our customers for their ongoing support to local charities at this difficult time.

Food bank for Christmas

We are still making deliveries to Brixham Food Bank every Friday. As well as tinned and dried goods, we are now sending bags of potatoes and oranges/satsumas.

If any of our customers would like to donate, you can do so in one of two ways. We have a box in the shop for you to drop off any goods you wish to donate; alternatively you can make a monetary donation and we will provide the goods on your behalf.

Thank you from Brixham Food Bank

We recently received this lovely message from Brixham Foodbank, which we wanted to share with our customers and others in the Galmpton community:

“To Galleon Stores and Galmpton Community, a big thank you from Brixham Foodbank for your kind donations and support.”

A reminder that we are continuing to accept donations of supplies in-store. Deliveries to the foodbank are made on a Friday.

Customers can also arrange for us to credit their account, for us to purchase donations of supplies on their behalf. 

Donations to Brixham Food Bank through Galleon Stores

We are pleased to share we are now working with Brixham Food Bank to allow our customers to support those in need of their services.

All you need to do is arrange with us to credit your account up to a value of your choice. Based on the list of appropriate groceries that has been shared with us, we will then arrange supplies up to this value, to be delivered and donated on your behalf.

Alternatively, you can ask to round up your bill and we will use the remaining value towards a donation.
