Co-ordinated by members of St Bartholomew’s Church, Food Friend provides much needed short-term support in the SK9 area for individuals and families who find themselves in difficulties until they are able to access benefits or employment.

Two local Cricket Clubs received grants.  Lindow Cricket Club received £2,000 towards the costs of installing an artificial turf nets facility.  Wilmslow Cricket Club received £500 towards the costs of purchasing a new roller.  Both grants will help to enhance the facilities of these local sports clubs.
