A double-header comedy gig is to help re-stock a Preston Food Bank.Advertisement
The Salavation Army put out a call to arms earlier this month staying its stocks were running low.
Preston comedy promoter Freddy Quinne has said they will be holding a collection of non-perishable goods as part of their shows in late July.
He said: “We were going to do a one-off gig but we have these two taking place at the end of July.
“It’d be great to see our audience help re-stock the Food Bank. We saw their appeal and felt we could do something.
“We especially encourage non perishables like tinned food, pasta, but also hygiene products are great too.”
