Last year we were Sainsburys (Colne) Charity of the year

We really appreciate their support and the opportunity they presented us to promote the work of the Centre to the wider community.

This year they are continuing to collect food items donated by customers to help with food parcel for the needy.

A big thank you to Sainsburys and all the kind people who contributed - it really makes a difference!

Volunteer Trip

Our Volunteers give us many hours of help and support during the course of a year.

Once a year we close the cafe for a day and give them a day out.

This year (on Tuesday 2nd August) we all went to Blackppol Pleasure Beach

A good time was had by all.


We provide free food parcels to the poor and destitute right through the year. (Yes they do exist - even in this day and age)

There is always a need for packets and tins (preferably with pull rings for easy opening) or for cash donations to enable us to carry on our work.

Donation can be made at the Centre or via collection points at both ASDA and Sainsburys (Colne Branches)

Christmas Food Hampers

A big thank you to all who helped us to produce hampers for Christmas 2016.

We were able to help almost 100 families this year, all of them in need but some in really dire circumstances.

The range of food, treats and toys was really breathtaking and between us we managed to give those families a much better Christmas than they could ever have imagined.

In particular we would like to thank:

Nelson & Colne College
New Life Christian Centre, Colne
Fishermore School, Colne
Emma's Farm, Clitheroe
Staff of Royal Blackburn Hospital
Carolyn Storey & Friends
Colne Tyre & Valeting Centre
Sainsburys Customers
and several individuals who do not
wish to be named.

Thank you to you all - you have helped us to really make a difference
