Over the school holidays Rochdale Foodbank received generous help from three Beech House girls taking part in the Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
This is the testimonial that the girls together wrote:
This year our chosen charity is the Rochdale Foodbank. We (Ellie J, Amy H and Rebecca B) are doing our Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award and for our volunteering section we are helping to raise as much money as we possibly can for a very deserving charity: Rochdale Foodbank. So far we have raised approximately £2000. During the holidays we have all helped volunteer at the foodbank and now appreciate how much people rely on it and what a fantastic job the volunteers do. Once we have completed raising money, we will go to a local supermarket and use the money we have raised to buy food for the bank, which is desperately needed.
