Food boxes and Halloween treats for families in Lache

Sanctuary Housing worked with partners in the local community to deliver more than 115 food boxes to families in Lache during the half-term holidays.

As well as food and essential items, the deliveries also included pumpkin carving sets and some spooky Halloween treats donated by local Tesco and Morrisons stores.

Charity Changing Lives Together, which operates the Cheshire Food Hub, supplied the food boxes with additional support from The Welcome Network, which aims to reduce food poverty in West Cheshire.

Sanctuary provided funding for the boxes, while staff and volunteers from Cheshire West and Chester Council, Lache Primary School, St Mark’s Church, Healthbox, Lache Community Centre and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service helped to pack and deliver them.

Further support was received from The Anchor and Café Nora, in Saltney, which both provided packed lunches to be delivered to families each day during half-term.

Libbie Stock, Sanctuary’s youth coordinator, said: “We know that there are many out there in need of support at this time and are committed to doing all we can to help.

“This was a real community effort and I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us.”

This project was funded by Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
