Since March, more than 2,000 food parcels have been given to vulnerable people and families across the county, from donations made at Poole Dolphin Shopping Centre foodbank.

John Grinnell, centre manager said, “The generosity of our shoppers has been outstanding.  At the centre, we can see first-hand the need for this service and will continue to help in whatever way we can.”

The centre remained open for essential retail throughout the pandemic, encouraging shoppers to donate food items to the Faithworks Wessex foodbank, which is opposite Marks and Spencer’s.

The shopping centre is currently open Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 6.30pm, and Sundays from 10am to 5.30pm. Elderly and vulnerable customers are encouraged to shop between the hours of 9am to 10am, whilst NHS and key workers will be given priority between 4.30pm to 5.30pm.
