Porch boxes: Can you help?

Listen now

This is a message from our good friends at Porch Boxes that we’re re-posting. Porch Boxes is a registered charity based in Bury, Greater Manchester. They provide Crisis Packs of food and toiletries for local people in urgent need.

Working hard

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought a variety of challenges across our community. Lots of families are experiencing reductions in their income and difficulties in accessing the food they need.

Porch Boxes are continuing to work hard to provide Crisis Packs during this difficult time. We are working with our regular local agencies, Social Services, Health Visitors and GP’s to identify areas of need.

We receive most of our regular donations from either churches or schools and from the donation boxes in various Supermarkets around the area. As churches and schools are now closed for the foreseeable future, we are receiving significantly fewer donations. We have also had to make changes to how we operate our warehouse. So, it is difficult for us to accept donations there.

Our donation points

We would like to ask all our regular contributors, particularly those who normally donate at their church or school, to deliver their donations to their nearest donation point please.

Some of our normal donation points have been temporarily removed to allow for social distancing. So, please use one of these locations:

  • Asda: Radcliffe, Pilsworth & Bury;
  • Morrisons: Whitefield & Ramsbottom;
  • Tesco: Bury & Ramsbottom

If you would like to make a money donation you can do so via the website: www. porchboxes.wordpress.com

We thank you all for your continued support. Porch Boxes
