Our charity relies on the generosity of donors to be able to continue providing the community with vital services. Donations from as little as £5 can provide a small essential food parcel for an individual, £10 can provide a large essential food parcel for a family, £20-£30 could provide essential materials for an outdoor space or room renovation including paint and gardening tools. If you would like to donate to the McCarthy-Dixon Foundation, click the donate button below.
Alternatively, view our Amazon lists below to purchase vital items for our Food Bank. All food items will be added to our warehouse stock and distributed to the most vulnerable members of our local community.
We are also planning ahead a little for this coming Christmas. Many families in the local community are still struggling financially and Christmas is another added pressure that they could well do without. Visit our Amazon Christmas List to order items that will be distributed to residents of all ages across Northamptonshire.

Our charity is built on the support and commitment of our amazing volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, improve personal wellbeing by helping others and integrate yourself in the local community.
We require volunteers for a range of areas including food deliveries, doorstep buddies and general maintenance. If you are over 16 years old and interested in volunteering, please call 01604 211554. DBS checks will be carried out dependent on the volunteer role and you can offer as little or as much time as you have available.
