Church's harvest festival collection provides plenty for foodbank
More than 400 tins, jars, bottles and packets of food will be heading their way to Chester and Ellesmere Port Foodbank following All Saints Church’s harvest festival service.
The church, in Hoole Road, Chester, is already a collection point for the foodbank so donating this year’s harvest festival food collection to them was a natural choice.
Youth Pastor Sam Durdant-Hollamby, who led the all age worship harvest service, said: “Understanding the importance of giving – whether it’s time, money or skills – is an essential part of our mission here at All Saints.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to see how much our children, young people and adults have taken this to heart with such an amazing and generous collection for the Foodbank.”
Chester and Ellesmere Port Foodbank is run by the Trussell Trust which helps individuals and families in crisis through the provision of emergency food supplies.
All Saints Church acts as a permanent collection point for the Trust and donations of foods, tins, packets and jars of food can be dropped off at the Church Centre from Monday to Friday during normal office hours or on Sundays.
