Volunteers needed for Summer 2016 Tesco Neighbourhood Food Collection

13th June 2016

Helping the hidden hungry in Morecambe is what we’re all about! That’s why we’re preparing this summer to take part in the national “Tesco Neighbourhood Food Collection” event and we’re looking for your help! From 2nd -3rd July 2016 we’ll be collecting food donations at Carnforth Tesco and believe us when we say #EveryCanHelps.

Last year we gave three-day emergency food supplies to hundreds of people in crisis in Morecambe and we need your help to make sure we continue to meet the need. From 2nd -3rd July 2016, pop down to the Carnforth Tesco store to donate and chat to us about what we do in the community. If you donate at Tesco, they’ll top it up by 20% to make your gift go even further!

How you can help!

  • We will be collecting donations at Carnforth Tesco store on 2nd -3rd July 2016.
  • Have fun & change lives by volunteering just a few hours of your time to help us collect the items essential to helping foodbanks feed people in need.
  • We are also looking for a volunteer van driver to help transport the donations from Tesco to our foodbank.
  • If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch on info@morecambebay.foodbank.org.uk  or call us on 07591763130 (we are open open Tuesdays and Fridays).
  • Share the event on social media with your friends using the message: Foodbank collection at Carnforth Tesco 2nd – 3rd July to #StopUKHunger! Will you donate? #EveryCanHelps
