Chelford School took part in a fantastic effort in collecting food for the SilkLife Foodbank in the run up to Christmas. As a result of their efforts they were able to donate around eight boxes of food, toiletries and pet supplies for those in need of support in our communities.
As you will all be aware, the use of food banks has risen enormously in the last 5 years.
Silklife Foodbank does an amazing job in our area. For more information, click here.
Silklife's latest announcement states that;
"We're looking forward to helping needy people in our area over the coming year ... and whilst we received amazing donations over recent weeks, we will still need to build our stocks of key items that we continually run short of.
So please consider donating 1 item a week into the donation point at Sainsburys, Macclesfield or hosting a collection through your place of work, school, church or club.
Items we currently need are
-Tins of meat
-Meatballs, Chilli, Curry, Chicken in White Sauce, bolognaise, Fray Bentos pies, hot dogs, ham, corned beef
-Instant mashed potato sachets
-Tins of Macaroni cheese, ravioli and spaghetti
