Carlisle Food Bank Donation Station

The Lanes Shopping Centre in Carlisle is pleased to announce its partnership with Carlisle Foodbank, a place that aims to help anyone who finds themselves in times of hardship.

Through the partnership with Carlisle Foodbank, The Lanes is now home to 2 new donation drop-off points located on Level one of the car park, beside the Pay Station and between Pandora and The Fragrance Shop.

Stephanie Humes, at Carlisle Foodbank said: “We all have the most basic survival needs, food and drink, clothing and somewhere to live safely and our aim is to make a difference for people in our community. We are thrilled to have The Lanes Shopping Centre as our partner as we have continued to see a real need in the community for food bank use in the last year, with more and more people struggling to afford the basics. We always welcome donations at the foodbank if you are looking to donate and if you are seeking our help, you will always be made to feel welcome.”

Susan Young, Centre Manager at The Lanes said: “Building on the success of our Christmas Donation from our generous retailers, we are delighted to enter this partnership with Carlisle Foodbank which works tirelessly to support people in crisis. Given The Lanes position in the heart of the community, we are uniquely placed to help the Foodbank, raise awareness and support those in need in Carlisle. The partnership will also present our own staff with opportunities to volunteer and provide practical help, bringing us even closer to the community we serve.”
