Avensure runners raise almost £1,000 for Stockport Foodbank
A massive thank you goes to the team of runners from Avensure who took part in the Manchester 10K fun run – everyone completed the run (despite one or two injuries!) and to date they have raised almost £1,000 for Stockport Foodbank – well done each one!
We’re thrilled to have been sponsored in such a way and if you can add to the Avensure collection please make a donation at our Everyclick donation page (donations that can be ‘Gift Aided’ can be increased by 25% at no cost to you)
Nappies and baby wipes now available
As a result of the generosity of the Vernon Building Society, we are now able to hand out disposable nappies, baby wipes and, when available, jars of baby food to Foodbank clients. In recent months we have been told by Referring Agencies and clients alike as to how expensive these items are, and now thanks to the generosity of the Building Society this project has been launched and supplies of the items will now be regularly available to Foodbank visitors.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OUR RECENT DONORS
Recent donations have come from Bramhall Parkrun, Kingsway School, Stockport School, Morrisons Reddish, shoppers at Tesco and Sainsbury's, Giraffe Office Supplies, St Peter's Hazel Grove, St Christopher's, Bosch, Kelloggs, Sainsbury's Hazel Grove, shoppers at Tesco and Sainsbury's, as well as scores of individuals who continue to drop off bags of all sizes!
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone.
