Southport Visiter - - Front Page -

A SOUTH­PORT food­bank is ap­peal­ing for help with its an­nual su­per­mar­ket Christ­mas col­lec­tion next month.

Vol­un­teers are needed to help Shore­line Church col­lect do­na­tions of food and money at Mor­risons at Win­ter Gar­dens on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 15.

These do­na­tions pro­vide a sig­nif­i­cant boost to the Shore­line food­bank which is open six days a week and served 13,000 peo­ple last year.

Rachael West, Vol­un­teer­ing Worker with Sefton Vol­un­teer Cen­tre part of Sefton CVS - com­mented: “At a time when food­bank use is at its high­est in the UK, do­na­tions are more vi­tal than ever.

“This is es­pe­cially true at Christ­mas time when de­mand for food­bank ser­vices is ex­pected to triple, based on pre­vi­ous years.”

Col­lec­tion vol­un­teers are re­quired for three hour shifts dur­ing the day.

These run from 9am to noon, noon to 3pm and 3pm to 6pm.

Peo­ple who wish to vol­un­teer their ser­vices should ei­ther email si­mon@shore­linechurch. org.uk or call 07880 601217 to get in­volved.
