Millennium Care donates to local food bank

3 minute read

Millennium Care has made a donation to a local food bank and plans to support the organisation throughout 2023.

Norley Hall Care Home is located a stone’s throw away from Fur Clemt, a foodbank fighting against food waste & hunger.

The community interest company, part of the global 'Real Junk Food' movement, is dedicated to reducing edible waste by collecting it from suppliers and making it available to the community reducing food poverty through its cafes, food outlets and food sharing scheme.

Their food share scheme provides access twice a week for members.

Following on from a recent campaign, Small Gift Big Gesture, Millennium Care have committed to supporting Fur Clemt through Norley Hall for the remainder of the year. The home will be sending them supplies which Fur Clemt can distribute to their beneficiaries.

“We met Fur Clemt in December and were so impressed by the work they do in our community. Personally, I am really happy that we will be able to support them for the rest of the year.

“Initially we’ll be donating items to support their affordable breakfast service, including coffee, tea, sausages, eggs, hash browns and long-life milk."

Kathryn Rimmer, Home Manager at Norley Hall

“We’re delighted by this initial donation and Millennium’s commitment of support for the year. This delivery will make a massive difference to our service users by enabling us to deliver affordable breakfasts.

“We’re looking forward to expanding on our relationship with Norley Hall Care Home and Millennium Care.”

Shirley Southworth MBE, Director at Fur Clemt in Wigan
