YOUNG Cubs from the 4th Lymm (18th Warrington East) gave up their Saturday to pitch in with efforts for the Warrington Foodbank.
Having learnt about food poverty and the Warrington Foodbank from a volunteer at their weekly pack night, they decided to take action and set up their own collection, generously supported by Sainsbury’s Local in Lymm, who donated lots of groceries and also set up a space for the collection in the warm.
Cubs need to work with people or an organisation from the community and carry out a project that helps other people. This is the first time 4th Lymm cubs have worked with the foodbank and many of the cubs are looking forward to taking up the invitation to visit the local warehouse.
Cubs Bryony, William and Olly then helped leader of the pack Bagheera deliver the goods to the sorting warehouse. Everyone at 4th Lymm would like to thank the generous people of Lymm for supporting the collection.
“It really is incredible how generous the people of Lymm are, and its given the kids a real buzz to see that what they are doing isn’t just making a difference to people in need, its making people in the village smile too.” said cub leader Ceri.
“It was a bit of a squash in the car – we had so many bags to deliver” said William, age 9.
“We’ve had such a lot of fun!” said Olly, age 10, “Its really nice to talk to people about the food bank and so many people have given us big bags of food!”.
