£295raised of £250 target by 19 supporters

    Weʼve raised £295 to Buy some large fresh fruit & veg boxes to give to food banks in South Manchester and Sale Moor/ Northern Moor estate where I used to live.

    Funded on Saturday, 30th March 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    Please don't let that deter you! I will buy extra things to add in from the money we get – Christmas crackers, wrapping paper, sellotape, party poppers, Turkey (if the foodbank can take meats) veggie options; deodorants; bubble bath; washing powder; these kind of things. I will drop by and ask what else we can add.

    Hi – I recently ordered a fabulous box of fruit and vegetables from a local provider. At two boxes for £35 it was full of the best fruit and veg. Not tiny stuff from the supermarket – lovely plump fruit and veg! I gave one to my son Patrick and shared some with my lodgers. Then I thought – how awful that some people are not going to be able to enjoy this wonderful fruit and veg over Christmas.

    Christmas boxes are £25 each or a double up for £40. Foodbanks have a lot of tinned fruit and veg to give away but I'd really love to get some Christmas dinner produce to help some families out. £250 would allow me to buy about 10 boxes – but this can be split to be double that – there is so much of it.

    I'd need to put an order in soon. Please can you help me raise enough money to donate some fresh fruit and vegetables.

    Even if you can just donate £5 that will help.

      250 would allow me to buy TEN boxes @ £25 a box and 6 £40 bundles. So I think actually that would be easily split to 20 boxes. Thanks guys!
