Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

A FOOD­BANK has gained praise for its work from the town’s MP.

Liz McInnes has praised the Light­house Project, which is work­ing to help fam­i­lies go­ing hun­gry.

On Satur­day (Dec 1) she vis­ited Tesco in Mid­dle­ton along­side lo­cal Coun­cil­lor Donna Martin, to meet vol­un­teers from the project who were col­lect­ing dona­tions.

Ms McInnes said: “The peo­ple of Mid­dle­ton gave very gen­er­ously to the col­lec­tion for the Light­house Project in Tesco on Satur­day. Thank you to Tesco for or­gan­is­ing this sadly much needed col­lec­tion and to Ian, Karl and all the vol­un­teers for their kind­ness and hard work.

“It is un­ac­cept­able that in the UK to­day we have so many fam­i­lies go­ing hun­gry. Food­bank use is soar­ing.”
