We are living through difficult times. Here at Netball UK, we are doing all we can to support the community we’re part of here in the North West. And we’d like to ask you to support us in that effort – if you can.
We will be donating to the Compassion Food Bank in Manchester and setting up a collection point here at Netball UK HQ in Oldham.
If they don’t receive more supplies in the coming days, they will have to close. That would be devastating at a critical time for the people and families that rely on them, especially as the number who need them who may well increase in the weeks ahead.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Make a donation of food at Netball UK HQ
The Food Bank needs a range of items – cereals; tinned soups and stews; pasta, rice and pasta sauce; tinned meat and fish; tinned beans and vegetables; tinned fruit; condiments and spices; oil; broth and stock; all-natural juice.
We’re putting a large basket by the shop door at Netball UK (Pennant Street, Oldham OL1 3BS) where you will be able to leave items without interacting with anyone. Hand sanitiser will be next to the basket so you can clean your hands and protect yourselves.
If you have any questions or can’t find us, you can call us on 0161 626 3936. The Collection Point will be open between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
Make a donation of money direct to the food bank
Every penny you give to the Compassion Food Bank will be spent on creating food parcels or meals for those in need. Any amount is welcome – large or small.
We know that some of you may be struggling yourselves and may not be able to help – if you can’t, please don’t worry. If you think a food bank might be able to support you, you can find more details on the Citizens Advice website >>
We’re here at these difficult times – for Netball, for our community, for you.
