The foodbank of Tameside South and Longdendale which includes the churches of St Michael and All Angels, Mottram, St Mary's, Hollingworth, Hollingworth Methodists, Hattersley Baptists and Mottram Evangelical Church applied, through TLT for a Together Grant to help to fund an extension which would improve their warehouse for food bank. We were delighted to help and were even more thrilled to hear that they also have succeeded in creating a great space for a Job Club and for children's work in the holidays.
The Mayor of Tameside, Councillor Joyce Bowerman opened the extension recently and was delighted with what was being provided.
Please pray for all of our food banks, especially as Christmas approaches.
(Sadly, we also have to announce the closure of the Together Grant. CUF have announced recently that this facility is no longer available).
