Festive Food Bank Boost

The Knowsley Food Bank has benefited from the kindness of three of the people whom AFG supports, as well as AFG staff, who have donated three boxes of food items to the Bank.

AFG Team Leader Anne Noon said: “It’s made the staff team and service users very happy to be helping people who may be struggling around the festive season. We’ve worked together as a team to collect all the items and drop them off at the collection point.”

“We learned about the Food Bank through the weekly Lunch Club at the Arncliffe Centre which the people we support attend. The staff team and service users brought a leaflet back with appropriate items for collection for the food bank. The staff team and service users all got involved and filled three full boxes of donations of food items.

AFG Area Manager (Learning Disabilities) for Liverpool City Region, Hannah Neary said: “I’m really touched to hear how our people supported, and the support team at St Paschals, got together. Well done guys!”
