Thank you St Margaret's!
A big thank you from the Ancora Project to St Margaret's School in Oldham!
Children at the school pick a charity every term - alternating between a local and global charity. This term they chose Ancora as their local charity. They have been collecting personal care items that they have given to Ancora to give out to people who need them.
The Ancora Project supports people in crisis in Oldham. They provide advice and support, food and clothing and life skills classes. It is supported by the Big Lottery Fund.
St Margaret's is attached to the diocese of St Margaret's Parish which is where Foodbank in Oldham first started. Oldham Foodbank is one of the project partners and last year gave out 638 food parcels to people in Oldham.
Suzy Pabla, who manages the project, went to the school to collect the items and meet the students. She said:
"A huge thank you to the fabulous children, parents and teachers of St Margaret's C of E Primary School in Oldham for their very kind donations to the Ancora Project and for choosing our project as their local charity for the the autumn term.
Your kindness is overwhelming and our beneficiaries will very much appreciate your donations."
