A NEW foodbank at Gateway Church is offering a range of support to locals.

The HUB is open every Thursday from 11am to 1pm at Mottram Hall, providing support for people in need.

Volunteers hope to provide more than just advice, as they offer events, workshops and introductions to new hobbies.

HUB co-ordinator Stephanie Aplin-Wakefield said: “Its purpose is to provide cohesion to a range of local agencies and ministries at Gateway that can help people with core issues, and connect people together.”
