We donated to a new (to us) Food Bank today. Volunteers from the Accrington Food Bank, operated by Accrinton Christians Together (ACT), Accrington came along to collect fruit, vegetables, bread and cakes etc. from Share the Care. It's always great to find a new organisation to help, and we were happy to help out, as it seems they needed the food, and would do lots of good with it.

We donated to Open Door again today. Staff there were happy to assist us in unloading the fruit, vegetables, bread and cakes.
All of the food donated will be put to excellent use in preparing meals for their customers. The Open Door Centre provides low cost, nutritious meals in their community Cafe.

Today, we dropped off bread, cakes and vegetables at Open Door in Colne. We know they will put this to good use either in their subsidised meals or their free food parcels. Open Door has been on our recipient list for many months, but we are hoping to increase our deliveries over the coming weeks.
While we are posting this, we would also like to give a big thank you to our main donors: Co-op Barnoldswick, Aldi Barnoldswick, Morrisions Skipton and M&S Skipton. Without these stores' contributions we just wouldn't be able to achieve so much.
Thanks also, to all the customers of Aldi, Barnoldswick who generously donate items directly by placing them in the 'charity basket' at the store.
