New Distribution Centre now Open <Sep 14>
We have now opened our new distribution centre in Old Skem. Vouchers can now be exchanged on a Wednesday 10am to 12 noon at Trinity Methodist/URC church on Highstreet Old Skem.
The centres at the Ecumenical Centre (Northway) and Oak house (Tanhouse), continue to run but with updated times.
Tesco Collection <June 14>
Thanks to all who helped out with our latest Tesco collection. Once again it was hard work, but worthwhile.
Food Banks Merge <Aug 13>
The new Skelmersdale foodbank is now up and running. This is a new joint project supported by the Skelmersdale Churches. Initially it has been formed by the existing Oak House and Ecumenical Centre foodbanks merging and joining the Trussel Trust. This means more resources and ultimatly more people being fed. Currently we are able to distribute food via the original two centres, Oak House in Tanhouse, and the Ecumenical centre in the town centre, however we hope to be opening more centres soon.
