Went to Tesco today and there was a collection point for Wirral Foodbank.
As people entered the store, each was given a paper list of items which are needed.
Looking at the list there are 15 items listed, 9 of food and 6 others.
As I understand Wirral Foodbank, it is for those who need feeding, and wonder why the list now includes,nappies toilet rolls,shampoo,tooth brushes,toothpaste and feminine hygiene.
I dare say it will shortly include washing up liquid, washing powder, soap, and more of the household items plus a christmas tree.
Some, may at times mistake tampons for cigarettes, but I fail to see how shampoo and tooth brushes can be digested.
Nobody minds helping out the people who need food plus nappies for their Baby
but, is this charity beginning to take advantage?
