Last Friday we were contacted by the local Farnworth & Kearsley Food Bank who unexpectedly had a weighing scale failure during one of their busiest times of the year. Taylor at Scalesexpress donated a new set of weighing scales and solved their problem.
To see how the team at the food bank were getting on with the new Salter Brecknell WS Scales, we popped down to see Alex, the food bank manager. Alex couldn't be happier with the scales and Taylor's quick thinking response to a pretty serious problem.
"Thank you so much for the really kind donation of the weighing scales. Your help really made a huge difference just when we really needed it!"
"The use of the scales made a real difference in helping us get all the food weighed and accounted for at at our warehouse during one of the busiest periods. It meant that we could get the food out of our warehouse and give it to those who really needed it, something we couldn't do without your donation."
In the financial year 2013/14, Farnworth & Kearsley Food Bank fed 2763 local people who had been indentified as being in crisis and in need of food. They were able to ensure that everyone who came in with a referral was met by one of their friendly volunteers, given some food and a hot drink, and then supported and signposted towards further help with their situation, as well as the food package they came for.
