We recently donated hundreds of chocolate Easter Eggs to a local food bank, Community Solutions North West, who support needy residents of Burnley, Hyndburn, Rossendale, Pendle and the Ribble Valley.
Community Solutions NW based on Springhill Road in Burnley, help on average 160 families a week, who are referred to the community based social enterprise via various local agencies and offer a completely holistic approach, encompassing everything from food parcels to education and help with cooking facilities.
Community Solutions receive food donations from local companies Warburtons, Birchalls Catering and Farmhouse Biscuits and from the general public via collection points throughout the region’s churches, charity shops and supermarkets. They also rely on financial support received by local businesses like Endsleigh Insurance, Aircelle, BT and ASDA.
Mandy Newlove, Strategies Manager for Community Solutions NW said: “The eggs will go out with tomorrow’s deliveries and will bring pleasure to lots of local families, thank you!”
We’re proud to support such a great local resource, who offer much needed hope and opportunity to some of the region’s most vulnerable residents.
Scott Dawson’s Sue Lawson who championed the donation to Community Solutions said: “As a family company who understand the importance of supporting the local community, we’re pleased to give something back and help support families who need that extra bit of help!”
