was reading in the local newspaper last night that they are moving food distribution centers to wallsey and couldnt believe it how can the government let people/families live in such despair,to become so poverty stricken that we need places like these?it made me very angry and very sad to think there are such hard up families living on the wirral.sad times indeed.

I'd be really interested in finding out more.
I have an allotment and usually have a surplus of fruit and veg even after I've passed it out to my neighbours, would be nice to be able to donate to somewhere like this and know that the produce was going to be put to good use and to people who really need it

We used to go to Thombo's, there's always been people on Wirral with a bit less than others. Never thought it would come to big distribution centres though, it don't ring right.

No, let's not help the people in our own country who prefer to spend their dole money on drink and drugs, how about helping these peeps out instead and putting the money to a better cause eh?

Damn people are so messed up.

If it is the one run by the Churches, then it will be very many pensioners who are donating! That doesn't seem right either does it ?

I happen to find it diabolical that they are taking from the good pensioners of Wirral.
Nobody goes without in this country, they get sufficient funds for living expenses, they maybe minimal but what do peeps expect? Money for jewellery, nights out on town, ciggies, ale? People seem to forget that those little items are a luxury.

There are genuine people in this world that need helping out who don't get anything at all! Never mind people who have it easy in our country getting free dole money to spend on what they like.

Blooming outrageous, taking from pensioners no

Whatever next confused

well ste thats a very blinkered way to see things its a shame that you think everyone in wallasey or the wirral who claims benefits is a smackhead or lazy im sure that would make lots of people very angry though i do agree with what you say about pensioners however it just happens the benefactors for these distribution centres are the big supermarkets not pensioners so your point is mute

To be honest i totally agree with Ste, JSA benefit and simular benefits like non working parents child benefits should be provided via food stamps and utility bills and a bus pass for travel with a pocket money allowance of 10 per week. this would ensure that the people who enjoy the free ride lifestyle would want to get a job and try harder rather than spawn out more children for more money etc.

Food and bills are essential with clothing money is not needed for anything else.

When may i ask did i say everyone in wallasey or wirral who claim benefits are "smackheads"?

It was you who said that, not me....

Sooo columbo, if these familys cannot afford food (even though the cash for the said food is provided for them free) where is the money going that they are provided with?

smirk


Bloody good point made by popeye, "stamps" excellent idea, that would go well with the method of paying the landlord direct too clap

read the papers take a look around and read up your own comments to find the drug reference you made first hercule i was only saying how sad for some families to be in such a dire situation no need to feel you have to get on your high horse as if you know everything ignorance is bliss after all i spose

Lauralou2, Ste's opinion is not blinkered and it's not mute.He is quite correct except for one thing.No one is forced. If the Church are organising this food distribution, (as you said), then firstly they put out an appeal to the congregations of the Churches, and as we know the majority are pensioners these days. They donate willingly and are not forced at all, but that is what the Church and congregation is about. You'd be surprised how many charitable organisiations they help and how much hard work is done behind the scenes, without shouting about it. They never stop!
Even if the suprmarkets do get involved, how much will you be donating to the cause, or is that not the sort of thing you do, because you would rather rely on others, supermarkets or not?

What distribution centres are you on about?

You mean soup kitchens?
