Some of the volunteers at Whitworth Lighthouse Community Foodshare
The Whitworth Lighthouse, which helps people in need, desperately requires the help of volunteers to help it continue operating at the level of demand required.
Also known as the Lighthouse Community Foodshare, the Whitworth Lighthouse is a non-profit organisation which provides food parcels of all the basics people need to help feed their families.
The group is appealing ahead of National Volunteers Week (1-6 June) for like-minded individuals to help across the following areas:
- Dropping off food parcels as and when required
- Regular supermarket and store donation collections
- Volunteers to help run the foodbank on a rota basis (this can be as little as 2.5 hours every three weeks)
One of the existing volunteers said: “If you are interested in joining a friendly team of volunteers, like meeting new people and have time to spare that you would like to spend volunteering, please send us a message with what you think you could help with. All offers of help are much appreciated.”
The Whitworth Lighthouse is based at 551-553 Market Street and is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from 10am-3pm: if you want to get involved as a volunteer, call 07922 951 096 or email.
If you think you would benefit from the Whitworth Lighthouse Community Foodshare, you can refer yourself by calling 07922 951 096 or email. You can also be referred through your local doctors’ surgery, school, social services, dentists, council offices and councillors.
