Our first 24 hours as a collection point

Our first 24 hours as a collection point for the Morecambe Bay Food Bank exceeded our hopes!

We received 16kg of donated foods in 24 hours, which is fabulous, thank you to everyone who donated to the box. The contents have been collected by the Food Bank van today, so we now have a whole week to collect before the next collection. I wonder what the coming week will bring?

Just for comparison, our neighbours in Holme village a mile away collected 128.5 kg for the Food Bank, so we've a way to go to catch up, but knowing the generosity of this village I am sure we'll manage it.

Please continue to leave your donations, the Food Bank needs them now more than ever, on average they are sending out 3 tonnes a day to needy families in the Morecambe Bay Food Bank area.

Thank you to everyone who is helping us help the Food Bank to help those in greatest need.
