Food bank

In 2016 we have delivered 970 basic food parcels plus around 170 extras parcels to 159 different households in Gt. Harwood, Clayton le Moors, Altham and Rishton.

So can we say a very big thank you to all who helped and to all those who donated all the food and money to buy food.

If you would like a parcel please ring 07594 478 093. If you would like to volunteer to help please ring 07594 478 093 or email us at
