A Pendle supermarket has made a £400 donation to a local charity.

Asda colleague Jackie Edward, along with a home shopping van driver, visited staff at Colne Open Door Centre, in George Street, to present the cheque. The money will be put towards Open Door’s food parcel service.

Dawn Lange, centre manager at Colne Open Door Centre, said: “Thank you to Asda for their generous donation, the money will go towards food parcels for the marginalised and those who are suffering a difficult period in their lives. On behalf of the Open Door Centre I would like to thank you for helping them.”

And Diane Springthorpe, Asda’s community life champion, added: “Colne Open Door Centre is well known in the community for their support and for the services that they offer. The community café is a great place for people to get together and we wanted make sure they’re fully stocked up for the summer.

“We understand that the centre team are always busy so hopefully our home shopping service will be come in handy as they will be able to order the food and get it delivered straight in.”

Colne Open Door Centre offers information, advice, guidance and support as well as free training and counselling for families and residents in the area. The cafe also provides low cost, nutritious meals to the community as well as food parcels, free hot meals to the marginalised and impoverished.
