Thank you!

We’ve been so busy getting on with our projects that we haven’t had chance to thank our wonderful donors. Well its long overdue and this Valentine’s weekend we wanted to share the LOVE!

Without you our wonderful donors, we simply could not do what we do. It is sad that we need to have a Foodbank at all- and in an ideal world there  be the need. However we are working hard to also look at the issues which bring people to food crisis in the first place.

During the month of December we received over 13 tonnes of food donations. This is truly staggering and totally unprecedented.  This included  schools and businesses.  Also the community champions who collect in local areas. Thank you.

This enabled us to pack, decorate and fill 170 Christmas hampers of additional luxury items for our Foodbank and Food Pantry clients and deliver them in time for Christmas.

We were also blown away by the generosity of people and groups, who opted to make financial donations over the festive period rather than give us food.  This is a most effective way to give because it allows us to investing our advice & support team.  These are the professionally trained advisers who are present at Foodbank and Food Pantry sessions to help clients with any worries about debt or to benefits.

Just some of the wonderful groups who supported us at Christmas:
Ainsdale WI
St James’ Birkdale
Presfield School
Southport Cycling Club
Southport Rotary
CrossFit ASG
Anonymous individuals : donating between £100 and £1000 . Truly astonishing and very humbling.
ASDA Southport (the ASDA Foundation)
Southport Cycling Club
Running Clubs and many more!

Thank you!
