Over 180 volunteers have been mobilised across the Ribble Valley to help us with our Christmas challenge for The Buddy Bag Foundation. These bags of love will be going straight to a local emergency care facility to support a child in a family needing to leave their home for safety, protection and specialist support. We have been provided with a simple shopping list for a boy or a girl within a specific age group. Over the coming weeks whilst shopping we ask you to pop a few extra things from the list in your bag.
A socially distanced drop off facility at Trinity Methodist Church on Parson Lane has been arranged on Thursday 26th November 10am – 12 noon and 6pm – 7.30pm and on Thursday 3rd December 10am to 12 noon and 6pm – 7.30pm.
The rucksacks will be taken to a local hostel and given to a child in a family facing a crisis and having to leave their home often without the basic essentials.
