Five hundred children have been fed as the result of a campaign by a Morecambe charity.

The Morecambe Bay Foodbank has collected and distributed food to needy families throughout the district since its inception just over 12 months ago.

This Saturday (December 14) the charity will continue its good work by hosting a Christmas Collection Day at its base, the GYM church on Green Street.

Everyone is welcome to come along to donate food between 10am and 4pm.

You are welcome to join the Foodbank volunteers for a cup of tea and mince pie and also admire their Christmas tree, donated by first year art, design and creative media students at Lancaster and Morecambe College. Schoolchildren have also been helping the Foodbank. Kids at Grosvenor Park and Torrisholme Primary have been busy making 500 paper plates for a display to represent the number of children fed by Foodbank donations.

Volunteers also recently took part in a Tesco three-day national collection, taking in food at Tescos in Morecambe and Carnforth.

The Foodbank welcomes donations of particular types of food and drink, and is especially running low on milk (UHT), long life fruit juice and sugar.

The Trussell Trust foodbank network works in partnership with local churches and communities across the UK, and last year fed over 300,000 people nationwide.
