Year of the Volunteer: Food banks & Anti-poverty
March is the Year of the Volunteer’s Anti-Poverty and Food Banks month.
Each month the Year of the Volunteer campaign focuses on a special theme, with March being dedicated to those who give up their time to help those who find themselves in difficult circumstances.
We’ve been catching up with a number of volunteer organisations and individuals, including South Sefton Foodbank and Lakeside Foodbank, Southport, who regularly spend hundreds of hours each month to help families and those in need of emergency food supplies.
Volunteers make a real difference in Sefton. They touch people’s lives in so many different ways, providing comfort and support, fostering community development, and actively helping to keep Sefton clean, green and beautiful
