Preston Community Hub’s volunteers are in the process of collecting gifts for children in the St Matthews and Fishwick area of Preston.

Currently around 120 families are served a week by the foodbank which is held on Tuesday and Thursdays between 1-3pm.

The events of this year have been devastating for many, especially families who need the foodbank and Christmas is set to be very different this year.

The Community Hub are encouraging people to donate gifts which can be given to those in need this Christmas.
