Food Bank

St Columba’s and Stephen Hill Church have expressed their sincere thanks for the continued generosity and support from the Crosspool community for the Firvale Food bank.

St Columba’s Church Manchester Road

This is a food bank with a difference. It brings together members of the community to interact, share and grow in confidence in a friendly, open and non-judgmental environment. Unlike other food banks who ask for referrals, anyone is welcome. Each week their volunteers cook a meal for everyone to enjoy and whilst they do provide a parcel of food, they like to also focus on the social aspect of the community atmosphere.

As well as the staple basics, products such as loo rolls, cereal, sanitary products, tinned meats, tinned curries, non-perishable foodstuffs and other products etc., are always needed and would be welcomed. (For obvious reasons they cannot take contributions of fresh meat produce).

Food donations can be left in a box outside St Columba’s Church (just below the letter box) by leaving a message on the church answerphone: 0114 2670006, or email: tara.osborne@stcolumbacrosspool.org.uk  Collection can be arranged.

If you would prefer to make a monetary contribution, either by cash or cheque, put it in an envelope and mark it for the attention of Food Bank c/o Tara Osborne and post it through St Columba’s Church letterbox.

Cheques should be made payable to ‘St Cuthbert’s PCC’ and with ‘Foodbank’ written on the back.

Please Keep Giving
