Saturday 3rd February Roving Surgery: Supporting the launch of a new Village Collection for Warrington Foodbank at Victoria Square, Stockton Heath
The latest series of Faisal’s roving surgeries revisited Stockton Heath, this time in support for the launch of a new Village Collection for Warrington Foodbank. Across the country an increasing number of people are affected by some of the harshest austerity measures in the last decade. The Foodbank is just one lifeline which helps those in desperate need with emergency supplies, supported through the generosity from local communities. It is part of an increasing Foodbank network across the country in association with the Trussel Trust.
Faisal Rashid Said:
I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who turned up at the Village Collection for Warrington Foodbank on Saturday morning in Stockton Heath. It was horrible weather, absolutely freezing and I can only commend everybody involved in organising this. These are the people out there helping those in need, all in their own time for nothing in return. They are the true definition of altruism.
It makes me feel very blessed to be in the company of the many unsung heroes who make a genuine difference in people’s lives. And let’s not forget the amazing people who came along to donate to the collection – you made it happen!
Warrington South Labour said:
“Brilliant effort from our Bridgewater branch members and Faisal, together with Stockton Heath parish councillors Laurence Murphy and Angela Fell, for launching the Stockton Heath foodbank collection so successfully this morning. Chris, branch secretary commented: “The haul was remarkable! A tribute to the generosity of people.” Thank you to all who helped and all who donated.
