    Can You Help by Sponsoring a Household Box?

    by  • August 25, 2012 • Fundraising

    We are providing ‘household boxes’ for new council house shares through Cheshire East Housing Options.  Currently people move in, often with very little, and by offering a shared household box we can help them to settle in.  Each box provides washing powder, washing up liquid, loo rolls, bin liners and various cleaning materials and costs just £10.

    If you would like to sponsor a box, or donate towards one please let us know!  Either fill in a contact form, call us on 07879 858586, follow the link to our Facebook page or email us at foodbank@silklife.co.uk.
