Members of the public are urged to support the appeal which is already backed by the Trussell Trust, Daily Mirror and super union Unite.
Commenting, Rebecca Long Bailey MP said “I and many other Labour MP’s are working with the Daily Mirror, Unite the Union and the Trussell Trust to launch the ‘Hope not Hunger Christmas Appeal.’ “Nobody should ever have to choose between heating and eating, but particularly at Christmas. Sadly thousands will go without, not just at Christmas, but all year round. People are really struggling to make ends meet on a constant basis due to anything from benefit sanctions to low pay and debt.
If you think you might need any help over Xmas please get in touch with my office on 0161 425 3738 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Also if you get a chance over Xmas to buy an extra few bits please don't hesitate to drop them off at my shop on Langworthy Rd and we will drop off at Salford Central Foodbank and the Mustard Tree in Eccles.
Foodbanks take other goods which many take for granted such as winter coats, Toothbrushes and Toothpaste and other essential toiletries. Gloves, hats and other warm clothes are very important for keeping people warm in the winter months.
