Today Chris Kirkbride, Registered Manager took all our leftover food from the school kitchen down to the Morecambe Foodbank and they were blown away by the kindness of Underley Garden.
We donated turkeys, sacks full of sprouts, milk, bread, fresh fruit and plenty more.
Chris said ‘to see all the staff there work flat out for free to ensure others less fortunate have a Christmas with food was humbling. In this day and age it is so sad to see the lines of people waiting to pick up a bag of food to get their families through Christmas.’
Below is Chris pictured with one of those amazing staff team in front of a Christmas Tree of food vouchers. Each of the 548 stickers represents a child that they have helped through their food parcels this month.
If you want to contribute you can send them a £10 donation by texting Advent10 to 70460.
Big thanks to Tina and Andre for helping Chris out with this.
Happy Christmas everyone!
The Foodbank emailed Chris and said:
Thank you, so much. Your donations were all distributed within half an hour of you leaving. We normally close at 3, but with people still Qing out the door still at that time, your donations couldn’t have arrived at a better time.
