We do this by adding fresh food, basic dry foods, and toiletries to a community pantry located in Thompson Cross on a daily basis.

We collect a significant amount of these items from local companies and other groups.

We are looking for people who can spare a few hours a week, or a couple of hours occasionally, to join our volunteer team to collect donations and add them to the pantry. Collections will predominantly be around Tameside, with a few from further distances across Greater Manchester.

You will be required to use your own vehicle and can claim expenses for the journeys you undertake.
