Our Harvest appeal for 2021 is for The Brick.
The Brick is a growing project that delivers big results for the community it serves. It offers services to people who are homeless, in poverty or facing debt crisis. As its name suggests, it provides a safe, solid building block for people in crisis to begin to construct a new life and become valuable members of society.
Rev’d Caroline, Brick Chaplain writes “Harvest is traditionally a time for giving thanks for the food that we have and the people who have provided it for us. Recent shortages of fuel, some food items and drivers have shown that many people rely on getting what they want when they want it. But for many others that’s not the reality – far from it. For these people food supply can be a constant source of worry – where is the next meal coming from?This ‘food insecurity’ is being addressed by The Brick through its food bank in Wigan town centre. The food bank relies on volunteers to collect donations, to organise stock, to make up packages of food, toiletries, baby items, cleaning products etc. But without donations from the public this couldn’t happen.”You can donate by bringing non perishable items on Sunday.
