Care group donates food to the needy during coronavirus crisis


Benridge Care Group is supporting its local community during the coronavirus crisis by donating food to the most needy.

The Southport based care home operator has partnered with food supplier, onCore Food Service Solutions to donate vital food supplies to the Salvation Army.

Benridge Registered Manager Lisa Connolly said: “OnCore has agreed to reduce their pricing to us, at cost, so that we are able to provide further supplies to them. The Food Bank has been set up by the Salvation Army in Walton, Liverpool.
