Chorlton & Didsbury Food Bank

The Chorlton & Didsbury Foodbank is now a stand-alone charity and has a license from the Trussell Trust to operate as part of their network of food banks working to their particular standards and systems. Constitutionally we can have up to nine Trustees. One way folks can help is by offering to be a Trustee for those who might like to be involved at this more strategic level. We currently have a few vacancies on the board of Trustees.

In more operational ways, our long-standing volunteer Project Coordinator is leaving at the end of March. We are very well supported by a large base of volunteers to assist on the days we are open to welcome and serve foodbank clients. We particularly need assistance in operational and support areas where no direct contact with clients is needed. The more backroom areas such as warehouse management/coordination, administration - particularly in relation to our website and social media, and in Fundraising.

If any of these roles on the Board of Trustees, or operationally appeals, please do get in touch with Phil Gay at to find out more.

Inconsiderate Parking

We have had quite a lot of reports of inconsiderate and sometimes dangerous parking over the last few weeks, with contractors and visitors' vehicles parked on kerbs and verges or on some occasions parked opposite residents' parked cars making it difficult for vehicles to pass between.

Every verge and kerb repair necessary makes it a little harder to avoid levy increases.

We are really grateful for reports of damage and where vehicles are identified we do try recover costs. Committee Members do their best to tackle parking which might damage verges or kerbs, but our resources are limited. Please download our "please don't park here" notice which we encourage you to use if you find vehicles parked on verges or kerbs.
