    Foodbank Homepage We have been absolutely staggered by the amount of food that has been donated over the last few months, and as a result, our stockroom is completely full to capacity!! What a blessing that is! As a result we are having to ask you all to please just PUT A HOLD ON YOUR DONATIONS UNTIL THE NEW YEAR. We so appreciate everything you give, but we are conscious that we do not want to waste any food. The Sainsbury’s donation box will be CLOSED from TUESDAY 16TH DECEMBER TO MONDAY 5TH JANUARY. Please help us to communicate this by sharing this status. We wish you all a happy Christmas and thank you all so much!

    CalendarThanks so much to all those who donated advent calendars, both individuals (some who collected over 50!) and local businesses, including Saffron Yoga, Tinytalk Macclesfield and Frodsham, Avon and Complete Money. In total we received over 700!! They’ve been distributed to children via the Children’s Centres, schools, Barnardos, homeless hostels and Watermill House. We have been truly humbled by the trouble people have gone to collecting them, such amazing generosity!

    Food BagsOn 10th December it’s been exactly four years since we gave out our first food parcel! Since then it has been a real privilege to show God’s love to people all across Macclesfield by providing emergency food support. We would like to sincerely thank all of you who support us in any way, big or small. So thanks to all who donate time, money and food, to all our delivery drivers and volunteers and to the staff at the agencies who do such a difficult job but often go beyond the call of duty to help people in real need.
