Inspire Middleton is the charity that runs the Lighthouse Project, Middleton Central Foodbank, Lighthouse Money Advice and Lighthouse Pantry. These projects have been supporting local people during these challenging times and helping families in crisis.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year, but for many of the families they are working with it can be a difficult time, which is why they are appealing for your support . Your donation to their Toy Appeal will directly help a child in need a child that will have been referred to them through their support services or local schools.
Your donations will be used to purchase toys or gift vouchers for children aged between 0-16 years and will be especially welcomed where we have a child who has requested a particular toy on their list from Santa!
This year the Lighthouse Project has undertaken:
– Middleton Central Foodbank saw a 32% increase in people needing emergency support last year, with meals provided for 2935 adults and 1691 children
– Lighthouse Money Advice debt service has been helping our community deal with over £1 million of personal debt
– Lighthouse Pantry has been supporting 146 different families, providing savings of up to £1,494 on their annual food bills, leaving more money available for other household bills .
Thank you for supporting our local community, and helping us ensure that fewer children in Middleton will be without Christmas presents this year.
