Councillor leads Labour drive for food bank supplies

Members of Formby Labour Party donated more than 40 bags of food to Southport Foodbank after the service said it was running short of supplies.

Parish councillor Carol Richards, along with Labour activists Liz Mercer and Catie Page, organised the collection.

Mrs Page said Formby Labour members had shown huge generosity once again: "We heard that the Southport Foodbank was running low on supplies so we contacted all our members in Formby and asked for donations.

"This is the third time we have organised a foodbank collection among Formby members and once again we had a magnificent response, with more than 40 bags donated.

"John Sullivan, the Foodbank Manager, sent his thanks and said demand for food has increased significantly over the past couple of months. He said they require all types of foodstuffs to ensure they can feed families in need."

Cllr Richards said she had seen first hand the impact of welfare reform and the increased need for food banks. She said: "I have been approached by residents in Formby explaining the terrible time they have had waiting for money they are entitled to. The system is cruel and the fact that food banks are even needed shows that the system is failing."
