In Shadsworth, we know the value of the work that is done by the Blackburn Foodbank and the residents are very happy to be offering financial support to such a worthy cause.
Ros Duerden said:
This is a very generous gift from the people of Shadsworth and arrives just as the Foodbank is moving to bigger premises where we will be able to offer more services to our guests.
