Here is a worthwhile project taking place now on the streets of Preston….

Hope for Life was created in a response to significant and rising levels of food poverty in Preston. Originating from the City Church Preston it quickly grew to include many people across the city and beyond.

Partnered with Stoneygate Children’s Centre they identify families that require food and support those in need in the city. They support families whatever their beliefs.

Some donations they receive go to supporting other food-banks run by the Salvation and Christians Against Poverty. They are currently supporting 7 families with monthly food parcels who between them have 18 children under the age of 10.

They say they are working on a video that will show the life changing difference the food parcels make to the families involved . This will be posted to their Facebook page later.

From their Facebook site they reveal a truce story: “a guy received an emergency parcel from Hope for Life after passing out from hunger in the reception of Stoneygate Children’s Centre having not eaten in several days. Yes, in Preston in 2012. Sometimes we can make the difference between life and death without even realising it!”

They have set-up a BT Donate page. Have a look at the link here: https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/citychurchpreston

If you are able to give to those who do not have the means to put food on the table in Preston then why not help out by giving?
