EMPLOYEES at a Prestwich business are doing their best to feed those less fortunate this Christmas.

FireCask in Sherbourne Street have turned their offices into a drop-off point for Salford Foodbank.

Kind-hearted workers have started a “reverse advent calendar”, giving one thing to a good cause each day of December.

Donations of food, toiletries and festive treats will be made every day until Christmas Eve, when a special delivery will be made to Salford Foodbank.

Digital PR Executive, Kirsty Rigg, said: “​We’ve all tried to do our bit with making donations, and we’ve made the office a drop-off point for anyone who wants to donate.

“It’s been a success so far, the hamper is growing at an alarming rate. I think we’ll have a fabulous collection on Christmas Eve that we can give to the foodbank.

“​Local businesses have already started making donations, including Basil & Lily and Myro, the local artist. If anyone else would like to help out, stop by.”

Items can be taken to the site from 9-4pm on weekdays until Monday December 23.

Salford Foodbank Manager said: “​We are very grateful for local businesses like FireCask donating over the Christmas period.

“So far in 2019 we have given out over 5,000 emergency food parcels to local people in crisis which is a 20% increase compared to the same period last year.

"Donations given by FireCask will help ensure we can continue supporting families and individuals who are struggling to afford to put food on their table”

Donations can be taken to FireCask on Sherbourne Street, Prestwich, M25 3BB.
