Manchester Withington MP Jeff Smith has shown his support for a campaign from Manchester Islamic High School for Girls to collect food for a local food bank.

Manchester Islamic High School for Girls are asking people to donate food (full list of items below) to the school at 55 High Lane, Manchester, M21 9FA between 9am – 3:15pm.  The deadline for all items is 25th January.

Jeff said: “I’d like to commend the pupils from Manchester Islamic High School for Girls for their initiative to collect food for vulnerable people in Manchester and Salford.

Although of course it is disappointing that there is a demand for food banks in Manchester, it’s great to see the school play such a strong role helping the local community.”
