November has been a really busy month at New Day Church Food Bank.  We have been really blessed with many donations from our local supermarkets and our wonderful community.
 
We have continued to receive donations from local supermarkets including  Jo the Community Champion from Asda Clayton Green (pictured here) and Kamran the Community Champion, Morrisons Deepdale, Sophie the Community Champion, Morrisons Bamber Bridge as well as Co-op Lostock Hall, Waitrose Capitol Centre and Tesco Extra Leyland.  We are very grateful for all your support.  
 
Lathams The Bakers Limited in Tarleton continue to provide fresh pies, cakes and pastries twice a week which are very much appreciated by all. In addition we have had extra home baked cakes from the lovely Rebecca.  Luv Preston have also continued to share their donations with us on weekly basis including bread, milk, and fresh fruit and vegetables. You are all amazing!

Our doorbell at Church continues to keep ringing with donations from our local community.  This has included many essential items and Christmas goodies from Beer Box, Joshua's Joy, university student accommodation, The Wishing Well, Red Rose Runners, Beam and Brycg, The Ballroom Salon, Emily (pictured right) and her brother Charlie plus many others.  Warren donated a Co-op voucher which he had purchased with the money he had raised from selling vinyl records - really kind, thank you.  Our local community are amazing and so supportive especially during this second lockdown.  

We have seen a rise in families and individuals needing our help in the last few weeks due to the pandemic.  So although we have seen an amazing increase in donations, it is very much needed and your continued support over the next few weeks will be critical to sustain the level of help.
 
At the Food Bank our volunteers do their best to provide for all the different needs of our clients. We have various types of bags for families, large families and single people plus those in temporary accommodation. We also try to cater for those having special dietary requirements including diabetic, vegetarian, vegan, food intolerances and halal. Well done to all the team who manage this so well!  We would also like to thank all those new volunteers who have started in the last few weeks.  We really welcome the extra help for the upcoming busy Christmas period.

We are currently helping over 90 individuals and families per week, so your donations whether in items or financial are very much appreciated and needed. We are registered with 'Just Giving'; if you would like to donate in this way, please press the 'Donate with Just Giving' button at the top of this page. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far especially those from the Gregson Lane Folk Club who support us regularly financially.

Christmas is coming!

Reverse advent calendar 2020

This year Christmas is going to be very different for all of us.  But we know that there will be many struggling individuals and families that will need our support.  So, we are really excited to introduce our Reverse Advent Calendar scheme!
 
To take part:
1. Find a good sized box
2. Add some festive decorations (optional)
3. Put one of the suggested items in the box each day
4. Bring your completed box to New Day Church (or contact us to arrange collection).

We will distribute the boxes to our food bank families over the festive period. A pdf of the advent calendar and the instructions can be found at the bottom of the page.  Thank you in advance!  Some eager folk have already brought in their boxes including Andrea and Kentsi!  
 
In addition we have had some Christmas presents for children to add to the food parcels over the festive period including two ladies from St.James' and also Joshua's Joy but more about that next month!  Roberts & Co (Lostock Hall branch) have become a food collection point for Christmas goodies in association with Joshua's Joy.

Emergency Appeal

This year, we have become aware of the desperate needs of some clients when we go out on food deliveries. In response we have set up a campaign on Just Giving for basic practical items and white goods. Please read the information on the link below and donate if you can. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.  We are 63% towards our target which is fantastic!

Row of bags and boxesOur Service

The purpose of our Food Bank is to provide provisions for people who are struggling to provide for themselves due to financial limitations as a result of various circumstances. Our service is designed to be a hand up, supporting individuals and families in need through engagement and support as they stabilise their financial situation. 

Two key principles in the operation of Food Bank are:

A Hand Up, Not A Hand Out – This is not just about free food – Our model is to: Engage / Assess / Support / Transform.

Home Delivery Model – Teams of fully trained volunteers deliver direct to the homes of the people needing our help.

To enable us to support our local community, we regularly need donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries, household cleaning items, pet food and other pet essentials. If you're interested in finding out how you can support our Food Bank including donating any items, please contact the team by phone or email or altenatively bring items to the collection point at the church in Ward street Monday to Thursdays, 9am - 1pm.
