Cen­te­nary col­lec­tion for food bank char­ity

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

MEM­BERS of a WI group dug deep for a food bank scheme as part of their cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tions.

The women from Rainow WI set them­selves the chal­lenge of col­lect­ing 100 items for the Silk­life Food­bank in Macclesfield.

It was part of ef­forts to mark the cen­te­nary of the WI move­ment around the coun­try.

The mem­bers smashed their tar­get and col­lected 155 items for the char­ity.

Cindy Brock­ing­ton, of Rainow WI, said: “Our mem­bers rose ad­mirably to the chal­lenge and through their gen­eros­ity we were able to do­nate 155 items.

“Two rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the food­bank char­ity came as guests to our meet­ing and af­ter giv­ing us in­for­ma­tion and statis­tics about their work they grate­fully re­ceived our do­na­tion.

“Con­tribut­ing to our lo­cal com­mu­nity at this time of WI cel­e­bra­tion gave our mem­bers a feel­ing of pride.”
