A care group has won the support of Birkenhead MP Frank Field in calling for more to be done for the Food Bank campaign to help those in crisis.
Premier Care Wirral is using its office in Clifton Crescent, Birkenhead, as a drop-off point for the Food Bank campaign in the Wirral aimed at helping those in most need.
Now the care organisation – which specialises in domiciliary care in the area – has the backing of the local MP to do more’ wherever possible.’
Frank Field said: “I salute the work of Premier Care and all the volunteers involved who have stopped hunger and destitution reaching a catastrophic scale in Birkenhead, by putting a much needed loving arm around people’s shoulders.”
Jay Dutson, registered manager for Premier Care Wirral which covers the region, said: “We’ve received a few donations since we opened the collection point but more needs to be done.
“People seem to think that we are now out of recession, but it’s certainly not the case in this area, and we want to help those who need it through the Food Bank.”
Those wishing to donate to the Wirral Food Bank can drop off food at the Premier Care office, 6-8 Clifton Crescent, Birkenhead, tel 0151 647 3458.
People can support the Wirral Food Bank in many ways from volunteering as a team building activity to sharing expertise. The team will help to create bespoke partnership programmes that are mutually beneficial and effective.
The Wirral Food Bank is located at Unit 14, Wirral Business Centre, Dock Road, Birkenhead
CH41 1JW, and is open: Monday-Thursday 10:00am-2.00pm.
