Ashton Food Aid and Penwortham Care and Share volunteers

Two community groups are appealing for help to house donations they are receiving.

Ashton Food Aid and Penwortham Care and Share are seeing regular and generous donations but need a storage facility in and around Ashton-on-Ribble or Plungington to keep their good work going.

Run by Ruby Abram and Lindsay Harrington, supported by a team of volunteers, to collect clothing and food for those in need in the city.

At the moment the team have two bases to distribute from, the Kingsfold Community Centre in Penwortham and St Andrews Church in Ashton-on-Ribble.

Some of the donations received to the hubs for distribution

Kingsfold is used the last Tuesday of each month and St Andrews is used Wednesday and Fridays from 12noon to 2.30pm.

Volunteer John Kay said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by how many generous donations we’re receiving.

“Everyone involved is a volunteer and we have no funds to be able to use a storage facility.

“The venues we’re working with so far have been hugely supportive and we’re currently renting storage spaces out of our own pockets.”
