Slow cooker

It costs just 21p in electricity to prepare a family meal with a slow cooker. Many low income families struggle with utility bills. Due to COVID and the restrictions in place we would prefer donations through Amazon, however we are still accepting slow cookers at FACES, Project 229 or the Foodbank. We really appreciate your support.
