2022 Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 4th April, 2022, at Bridge Community (Methodist) Church, Radcliffe, commencing at 7pm prompt. All are welcome to attend.


As we see the country ending the restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 pandemic, Porch Boxes would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to the people of the Metropolitan Borough of Bury and surrounding areas, for the incredible way that you have supported Porch Boxes during the last 2 years. The significant increase in financial and food donations have enabled us to widen our reach to those in need, at a time when Porch Boxes was their only source of food.


The generosity of the community of the wider Bury/Radcliffe area, has been amazing and very humbling.
Thankyou so much to everyone who has in any way supported the work of Porch Boxes both before, and during the pandemic, and indeed continue to do so as life returns to a sense of normality.

Margaret Banner

Thank you to the friends and family of Margaret Banner

Margaret Banner peacefully passed away recently. She was the best wife, mum and nanna that you could ask for and will be dearly missed.Margaret would never see anyone go hungry, especially children so the family decided that Porch Box was the most fitting charity to receive donations on her behalf.

In total £735 has been raised and this would of put a huge smile on her face, especially in this current climateHopefully it will put a smile on a few families’ faces at this time of year.
