Money getting tight?

The cost of living crisis means many people are finding it hard to make ends meet. Some of us have lost pay, some of us have lost jobs and we all have bigger bills to pay. If you would like a referral into the foodbank in Kirkby have a look at the link below and Sam can help you out.

Food banks provide basic provisions, support and advice to those in need. They have emergency food parcels to support people on a low income, in crisis or who are struggling to buy food. If this is you, then we are here to help. Click on the link above or give them a call on 07803 552381.
