Well done to all at Golborne Joggers, who hit the road to help collect donations of food and other essentials for our local food bank.
The joggers held a collection in aid of the Ashton Churches Together (ACT) Foodbank at their pre-Christmas 5k run.
The items which were donated filled more than 20 food parcels, which were distributed to local families in need, including right here in Golborne, by the Food Bank volunteers, in time for the festive period.
