    Expanding our Food Store!

    by  • October 20, 2012 • Silklife Foodbank

    We’ve outgrown our stockroom!  To meet the growing need for emergency food we’re expanding our food store and installing sturdy new shelving.  Thanks to all who donate so we can fill them!

    Fantastic Support From Harvest Festivals

    by  • October 4, 2012 • Donations

    We would like to thank all the churches and schools who donated their harvest collections to the Foodbank.   Between them, St Johns Brownies, Gawsworth Methodist, Kings Junior School, Broken Cross Methodist, Rainow School, Mobberley Methodist, St Edwards, Hollinghay School and Sutton St James Church, have collected over 600 items of food!

    Everything from tins of beans to breakfast cereal were donated and with demand increasing as more and more agencies start to use our services we’re so grateful to all who donated and to the churches and schools for choosing to give to us.  We have loved seeing the people of Macclesfield come together to care for people having a really difficult time – you’re all amazing!

    We’ve just had calls from Whirley Pre-School and Macclesfield Christadelphian Church offering to donate their harvest collections too, that makes 11 in total!  Fantastic!
