  2. Preventing holiday hunger and keeping kids active over summer

    We were among those who helped the Urban Outreach charity to provide Bolton Lunches for school age children, so no school meals during the summer break meant no problem for families.

    We pitched in to prepare food and drink lunch packs at the Humanitarian Hub on the Greenworks site that we share with Urban Outreach at Trinity Retail Park. And every weekday we handed out packs from collection sites across neighbourhoods.

    Read on to find out how many lunches were given out in six weeks.
