Advent boxes 2020

Happy New Year!  Thank you so much for all your donations over the Christmas period and over the last year.  We have worked out that we have been able to send out approximately 3500 deliveries to support more than 700 families in 2020!  These are sad but amazing statistics.  Sad because it just demonstrates the need but also amazing because as a Church and a community we have been able to come together to offer this level support.
 
As you may know this year we encouraged folk to fill a reverse advent calendar box and we were overwhelmed with how many people came on board with the scheme (see photo).  It was wonderful to be able to take these extra items out to our clients over the festive period.  We also had another lovely surprise for some of the clients that receive our deliveries.  We took out 130 Christmas dinners which were kindly provided by The Hinds Head at Charnock Richard (pictured here)  Thank you so much, they were very much appreciated.

3 people and Christmas meals

We have continued to receive donations from local supermarkets including from Morrisons Bamber BridgeAsda Clayton Green, Co-op Lostock Hall, Booths Longton, Sainsburys Bamber Bridge and Tesco Extra Leyland.  Your ongoing support from you and your customers makes a big difference.
 
Lathams The Bakers Limited in Tarleton continue to provide fresh pies, cakes and pastries twice a week which are very much appreciated by all.  Luv Preston have also continued to share their donations regularly including bread, milk, and fresh fruit and vegetables. 
 
The local community continue to pop in with their generous donations for which we are very grateful.  We are also very blessed to receive so much from local groups and businesses including Preston Power Sports and Social Club who work at Electricity North West (who donated Asda vouchers), BAE Systems Samlesbury Shed 2, Lostock Hall and Leyland Slimming World Groups, B & Q Bamber Bridge, Lostock Hall Juniors Football Club Under 12's Blacks, Co-op Funeral Care, Sue Ryder Fulwood, Lostock Hall Football Club, Beer Box, and Roberts & Co.
 

Man with a vanWe would also like to give an extra big thank you to Grange Lane Garage, Van and Wagon Hire for so kindly allowing us a van for 3 days during Christmas week.  This enabled us to deliver the extra Christmas advent boxes and gifts much more easily.  Thank you also to our amazing volunteers who really went the extra mile to get all the deliveries out over Christmas.  You are all amazing and worked really hard.

Boy with certificate and cake
An extra special thank you goes to Joshua's Joy who has reached a very ambitious fundraising target of £5,000 for food bank this year!! You are our community hero.  We give a huge congratulations to the whole family! Your support has enabled us to help many more families this year! Also thanks to Rebecca for a fabulous cake!
 
We have seen a rise in families and individuals needing our help in the last few weeks due to the pandemic. So although we have had an amazing increase in donations, it is very much needed and your continued support over the next few weeks, especially with the latest restriction, will be critical to sustain the level of help.
 
At the Food Bank our volunteers do their best to provide for all the different needs of our clients. We have various types of bags for families, large families and single people plus those in temporary accommodation. We also try to cater for those having special dietary requirements including diabetic, vegetarian, vegan, food intolerances and halal. Well done to all the team who manage this so well! We would also like to thank all those new volunteers who have started in the last few weeks. We really welcome the extra help for the upcoming busy Christmas period.
 
We are currently helping over 90 individuals and families per week, so your donations whether in items or financial are very much appreciated and needed. We are registered with 'Just Giving'; if you would like to donate in this way, please press the 'Donate with Just Giving' button at the top of this page. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far especially those from the Gregson Lane Folk Club who support us regularly financially.

Our Service

Row of bags and boxes

The purpose of our Food Bank is to provide provisions for people who are struggling to provide for themselves due to financial limitations as a result of various circumstances. Our service is designed to be a hand up, supporting individuals and families in need through engagement and support as they stabilise their financial situation. 

Two key principles in the operation of Food Bank are:

A Hand Up, Not A Hand Out – This is not just about free food – Our model is to: Engage / Assess / Support / Transform.

Home Delivery Model – Teams of fully trained volunteers deliver direct to the homes of the people needing our help.

To enable us to support our local community, we regularly need donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries, household cleaning items, pet food and other pet essentials. If you're interested in finding out how you can support our Food Bank including donating any items, please contact the team by phone or email or altenatively bring items to the collection point at the church in Ward street Monday to Thursdays, 9am - 1pm.
