I AM writing in response to your correspondent asking about donating food for the needy (Letters, February 11).

Here at Fylde Coast Church Alive we run a community cafe on a Wednesday and a soup kitchen on a Friday, both serving between 40 and 60 people who are either homeless or living In ‘bedsit land’ with little or no facilities for creating a hot meal.

In addition to this we hand out food parcels, clothing and household items to the most needy and vulnerable within our society.

We are always happy to 
accept donations of food, clothes or household items and can collect if required. To donate or request help telephone 07928 262653 or call at Fylde Coast Church Alive, 1 Raikes Parade, Blackpool FY1 4EY.


WE would be delighted to receive any food for the homeless, at our church.

We are based at North Shore Methodist Church, on a Wednesday Morning.

I am part of a team, who are there.

If there is a problem with transport, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

THE sun had come out! Saturday evening after seeing ‘Annie’ at the Michael Hall Theatre School on Preston Old Road.

A very big thank you to Michael Hall and Amy Rutherford for producing a wonderful show with 80 young enthusiastic, full of vitality performers on such a small stage was something special to see.

The costumes and hats made by Lynn Arron were very creative and worn with panache.

To watch these young people accompanied by a 14 piece orchestra, reassures us that we will never be without musical theatre whilst such special people are leading the way.

Thank you again Mike and Amy and all who helped with production
