Most Of Us Are Only Eight Weeks Away From Poverty!
Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington Lancashire Want You All To Help With The Maundy Relief.
Here at Greengates Builders Merchants we have taken a Maundy Relief box to help the local community of Hyndburn.
Did you know that since January the Maundy charity has given out over 700 food parcels to families in Hyndburn who are desperate and cannot afford to feed their families.
We know a lot of you think it’s their own fault they should manage their money better, they should get a job etc. but it’s not always that easy.
Do you know that most of us are only 8 weeks away from being in this same situation? How long do you think you would be able to last if you lost your job? Have you got thousands stashed away just in case?
Statistics tell us no we haven’t. Most of us spend what we earn and only put away a small amount for emergency funds. Some of us don’t even do that because we can’t afford to, we need every penny we earn to make ends meet each week.
So when you go shopping this weekend please think of those less fortunate than you and even if your money is very tight at the moment just buy one extra item of non-perishable food and put it in a Maundy box.
There are boxes on Accrington market at Slacks Butchers, M&IK Butchers, All Fruits, Fairbrothers Biscuits and at Greengates Builders Merchants Whalley Road Accrington.
All donations will be gratefully received by the Maundy Relief campaign.
