Aldi, Prestwich have donated £200 worth of food to the Porchboxes food bank in Radcliffe.


The donation was organised by Sedgley councillor Alan Quinn who contacted Aldi and asked them to help. “It’s a sad fact that since this coalition came to power food banks use has increase dramatically, I asked Aldi to donate some food and the were only too happy to help, they added that they see themselves as part of the Prestwich community and in here for the long term“.


Alan’s trade union colleagues at BAE Systems, Samlesbury have matched Aldi’s donation as part of their food bank initiative.


Unite is a campaigning union” said Alan, “we will not sit idly by and watched our neighbours go hungry“.
