We did it - we made 15000 sandwiches to feed children in BwD. 15000 sandwiches which made a real difference!

Summer Lunchbox nurtures our children

This holiday we have made 15500 sandwiches to feed children across Blackburn with Darwen. Our oldest team member was 87 on our last day, so we just had to have a cake to celebrate! How lovely that the team caring about our children included an eight year old and all ages inbetween.

The communities are so grateful that we are helping - whether it means that they can have enough food or whether it just helps release that extra little bit of money to pay for other food, clothing, expenses or even just a treat. After all, we all need something special now and again, and when money is too tight, that often is not possible. That's why this is more than just holiday hunger - it's about holiday nurture. Thanks to the Family Health and Wellbeing Board for their financial contribution, much appreciated.

Meeting to start planning next year's activities on 16 October!
