Food Bank Donations

Dear All

On Sunday 31st May three members of Greenmount Helpers will be assisting in the collection of food donations for local food banks.  This is an initiative from the local Impact group of young people from the parishes of St. Hilda’s Tottington and Guardian Angels.  If you can drop your donations off in a sealed plastic bag, following the instructions below they will be gratefully received. If you are unable to drop off any items at this time donations can be collected from your house, please reply to this email or call Greenmount Helpers on 07958 173940 – 7 days a week between 9am – 3pm if you need anything collecting.

Thank you and stay safe

SUNDAY 31st May from 11:00 am—1:00pm ONLY.

The Impact Group has organised a ‘drive-by’ facility at both our churches for people to drop off bags of food and toiletries.

The youngsters will set up a safe ‘drop off’ zone in the parish centre car park at Guardian Angels’ and in the small car park between the church and parish house at St Hilda’s. Please put all your items into a sealed plastic bag and just drop the bag off on the tables provided at the entrances to the car parks. The bags will then be sanitised and loaded directly into transport that will take all the items to the various charitable centres. Items that are required are the usual things we ask for when we do our Helping Hands Sunday e.g. Cereals, Tinned Soups and Stew, Pasta, Rice and Pasta Sauce, Tinned meat or fish, long life milk, toiletries etc. PLEASE NO CLOTHING.

If you can help, just a small bag of items will go a long way and, rest assured, we will be operating safe social distancing and good hygiene practise at all times.
