They then went along to the Asda store in Leigh and spent the cash on a mountain of products to be sent to Atherton and Leigh Foodbank.

Warren Done, who set up the organisation distributing emergency food parcels to those in need, brought along a list of the items which were required before three trolleys full of groceries were transferred to the foodbank’s van.

The Guides were supporting Atherton and Leigh Foodbank as part of a project which required them to do something supporting their local community.
