Brownies lend a hand
A FOODBANK received a welcome helping hand when it was visited by a Brownies unit
Members of the all-girls 58th Southport Sacred Heart Brownies have been busy collecting donations for Southport Foodbank.
The girls, who meet at Sacred Heart Church, Ainsdale, visited the Foodbank facility at Lakeside Church to follow the process of what happens to the donations.
Southport Foodbank, which manages six outlets in the Southport and Formby area, is part of the Trussell Trust’s UK-wide food bank network. The Trussell Trust helps local communities to open foodbanks, providing emergency food to thousands of people nationwide every year.
The Lakeside Church Foodbank is open on both Monday and Friday, from 1pm to pm, and clients referred to it can be given three days of food up to three times in any six-month period.
The charity is on-going and non-perishable food items can be donated directly to Lakeside Church or Tesco at Kew.
