Join the fight to end hunger and tackle food waste in Banbury

Fundraising for the Breadline project helps us to continue to redistribute quality food to vulnerable people across Banbury.

We receive no statutory funding and rely entirely on donations and grants to keep us doing the work that we do. Every pound raised helps us to provide food for people who may otherwise go without food.

Whatever your skills, interests of sporting passions there is a fundraising option to suit you.

Take on a Challenge

Whether running, swimming or cycling is your thing, taking on a challenge can boost your fitness, improve mental health and give you a goal to work towards. Your fundraising efforts for the Breadline project can have a huge impact, as every £1 raised provides meals.
