Access Point launch 'Operation Christmas Dinner'

 

operation christmas dinner In the run up to Christmas Team Access Point will be collecting donations for 'Operation Christmas Dinner' On Behalf of the Southport Foodbank.

 

Our goal is to donate huge food parcels; specifically including Christmas dinner hampers, to the local Southport Foodbank.  We want to give those less fortunate in the community the Christmas dinner we all deserve.

 

Trussell Trust foodbanks rely on in-date non-perishable food donations to feed local people in crisis. 

 

Since opening, the Southport Foodbank has given out over 57 tonnes of donated food to the local community and helped to put thousands of individuals and families back on their feet.

 

This Christmas Team Access Point are working hard to help families in need.
