Cash donations, iPads and food stolen in raid at Trussell Trust-run premises
A fundraiser has been launched by Oldham food bank after a burglary in which items including cash donations, food and electronics used by volunteers were stolen.
Tins of chocolates similar to those given out to vulnerable families in Greater Manchester over the Christmas period, jars of coffee, a password-protected hard drive containing clients’ data, iPads and £200 in cash donations were taken.
A GoFundMe page has since been set up by one of the food bank’s volunteers to raise money to replace the stolen goods. In seven hours, over £1,400 has been raised through online donations – including from people as far away as Switzerland.
