TWISS Green Primary School has donated a bounty of various food items to Helping Hands Culcheth, a community group set up during the COVID-19 pandemic that distributes essentials to those in need in the WA3 area.
Under the leadership of Head Teacher Mrs Fuller the children, parents and staff collected over 30 bags of food items and arranged collection with Wendy Maisey the founder of Helping Hands Culcheth.
Wendy who is also a Borough Councillor in the ward of Culcheth Glazebury & Croft said: “Harvest Festival is a time to reflect on what the land has given us and to think of those in our community who may be in need of help, or would benefit form a kind gesture. We are overwhelmed at the size of the donation. This will be despatched to families and individuals in the WA3 area.
“In Autumn 2020 Twiss Green Primary also selected Helping Hands to donate their Harvest Festival collection to and we’re extremely grateful they have chosen us again. I’d like to say a huge thank you to all at Twiss Green Primary on behalf of the Culcheth and Orford Branches of Helping Hands, you really have made a big difference with your kindness. We have a fantastic network of local volunteers who will be helping with the distribution”.
Helping Hands Culcheth will also be repeating the Christmas advent calendar appeal this year after the success last year.
Wendy says it’s a great way for local residents to give back to their community. A list of 25 Christmas-themed food items will be published along with details of drop off points shortly on the group’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/hhculcheth/
