Christmas 2017 Update

Many thanks to all those who have donated food, toiletries and toys in the busy period leading up to Christmas. As well as our routine orders for over 400 crisis packs every month we have prepared well over a hundred special Christmas hampers for individuals and families in the Bury area and provided toys for local children who might otherwise have had very few gifts.
