Emergency food for local people in crisis.
Skelmersdale foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust national network of foodbanks, providing a minimum of 3 days worth of nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people in crisis in Skelmersdale and the surrounding area. We collect non-perishable food which is donated by the public through churches, businesses, schools and supermarket collections. Front line care professionals e.g. social workers, doctors etc refer people to the foodbank with a voucher which is exchanged for 3 days worth of food. Over a chat and a drink we listen and are also able to signpost clients to other agencies for support.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
