A charity which provides food to those in need has received a much need cash-boost thanks to generous staff at a social housing provider.
Employees at Salford-based Salix Homes organised a raffle and donated the £136.20 raised to the Salford CAB Food Appeal along with a mountain of food.
The Salford CAB Food Appeal distributes donations of food to other charities operating food banks in communities across Salford.
Cash donations are used to buy specific items in short supply such as cereal, which are then donated to people in need.
Sue Sutton, director of customer and neighbourhood services at Salix Homes, said: “When we heard about the Salford CAB Food Appeal we really wanted to do our bit to help.
“Sadly many families in Salford are struggling to put food on the table, which is why we feel it is so important to support charities like Salford CAB for the wonderful work they do.
“We are proud to support the Food Appeal and hope our donation goes some way to ensuring families inSalforddon’t go hungry.”
Tom Togher, Salford CAB chief officer, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to our colleagues and friends at Salix Homes.
“We are already firm partners, and very much look forward to working with Salix Homes and other local partners in the fight against food poverty."
