Hello everyone.
Firstly thank you everyone for your continued support.
Just need to give some updates.
Firstly I am currently going through messages. We have plenty in the inbox going through. So to explain different things we are asked.
WHEN ARE YOU OPEN FOR ME TO DROP DONATIONS OFF.
We are open Monday to Saturday 12 till 4pm for you to drop donations off.

All we ask that all items are clean and usable as refusal often offends. Plus when we have to dispose of items it costs the charity money.

WHAT ITEMS ARE YOU WANTING IN THE DONATIONS?

We accept all clean and usable items from Bric a brac, toys, clothes, kitchenware, electrical items, bedding, curtains, books, dvds, food (in date) furniture with fire labels clean and usable but please contact to make sure we have the room in storage for it.

AM I ABLE TO GET A FOOD PARCEL?

Blackpools Voice does an EMERGENCY FOOD BANK. This means we cannot help those wanting a food parcel every week without having an assessment done. We do not like being able to say we gave hundreds of food parcels. To us the goal is to get as many people as possible to NOT need a food parcel.

Also we know that some people are abusing the systems of local food banks and asking all of them for a food parcel. This in turn stops 4 families not getting what they need.

So we ask why you need a food parcel and what can we do to help you. Alot of the time they are on the wrong benefits or don’t know what entitled too. So we will be asking for proof of benefits.

WHAT FOOD CAN WE DONATE TO HELP TO FILL UP THE FOOD BANK?

*Pasta *Rice *Pot noodles *Instant Noodles *Baked Beans *Spaghetti *Soup *UHT Milk *Cereal *Hot dog sausages *tuna *burgers in tin *spam *corned beef *curry *fray bentos pies *chicken in white sauce *Spaghetti bolognese *Ravioli *butter *pasta sauces *crisps *chocolate *crisps *custard *rice pudding. All and anything gratefully recieved.
