The Mid-Cheshire Food Bank is part of the Trussell Trust network of food banks, and during 2020 has saw a huge rise in demand for its services. From April to October this year, it has delivered over 3,000 food parcels to adults and just over 1,800 to children, in the Northwich and Winsford area – amounting to a 43 percent increase in deliveries in the past year. 

Mark Newnes, Managing Director of Oldham based C & C Vehicle Services Ltd, said: “The Mid-Cheshire Food Bank is a fantastic cause, doing a wonderful job in the community, so when we were approached to help out, we were delighted to get involved. As our day to day business is fixing vehicles, that’s where we focused our efforts. We completed all the necessary repair work on the van free of charge and it’s great to see it roadworthy again and ready to begin its vital work in the community.”
