Supporting Blackburn Food Bank

Donation to Blackburn Food Bank, Easter 2024

On 25 March, we donated 144 tubs of doughnuts to Blackburn Food Bank in support of its Easter Treat food parcels.

Based on Oakenhurst Road close to the town centre, Blackburn Food Bank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust. It is run mainly by volunteers and seeks to help those who may be struggling with poverty and hunger. In particular, it supports people who are referred to it by partners including GPs, social workers, housing providers and the emergency services. Since its foundation in 2012, it has provided over 440,000 meals to nearly 120,000 residents of Blackburn with Darwen.

In 2023, nearly 7,400 of the people it supported were children.

We first began working with the organisation towards the end of last year, when we contributed to its Christmas campaign. It performs a very valuable service for local people and communities, and we intend to provide regular support.

The organisation’s ‘Give Help’ web page provides more details about how companies, individuals and other interested parties can support its work.
