Antiques evening in Broughton is something new for Methodist Action North West

“If you would like to organise a collection of non-perishable food at your church or work place, please let us know.

“In addition to this, we sign-up five to eight new tenants every month, many of whom have very few possessions. We would very much like to be able to provide them with a Tenant Welcome Pack to start them off in their new home. This would include: washing-up bowl, washing up liquid, cloths, sponges, tea towel, tea bags, coffee, sugar and biscuits. If you are part of an organisation that may be interested in collecting items and assembling these packs please get in touch.

“For our Christmas Toy Appeal, all toys will be given to local, disadvantaged children.

“Toys should be unwrapped or in gift bags and preferably new.

“If you would like to set-up a collection point, or make a donation to either of these appeals, please get in touch.

“All items would be collected for distribution no later than week commencing December 10.”

People are also invited to hold a Christmas Jumper Day, and donate funds to the cause, which supports the homeless and disadvantaged across Lancashire.

To make a toy or food donation call 01772 751000 or email [email protected]
