• Liberty helps launch City West's 2015/16 Winter Welfare Programme

Hand packed by Liberty staff, the food parcels contained soup, Christmas puddings, biscuits, canned meat, fruit and beans, fish, porridge oats and gloves - essential items for families struggling to get through the winter months.

Each parcel was donated to the Mustard Tree and the Trussell Trust, which are working to tackle hunger and poverty across Salford.

It is anticipated that the charities' food bank will be support a high number of individuals and families in need of emergency food throughout the winter period.

Liberty's Managing Director David Blount said, "We're proud to support the fight against food poverty in partnership with City West.

"This hugely worthwhile project is one of many across the country that Liberty actively supports. By working together, we can all do our bit to reduce food poverty and build sustainable futures."
