Diane Hawkins JP LLB, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, Chair of the Greater Manchester Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund said:
“The Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund has been delighted to fund Caritas Salford since 2010 to help with its core activities but also for some specific, discreet projects.

“In addition, during the last year we have been pleased to award money from our Special Food Provision Fund to Cornerstone, Red Door and the Lalley Centre.

“We are pleased to be a contributor to the work of Caritas Salford and the impact it has amongst our vulnerable communities.”

Where your money goes

It costs £12,000 per day to provide the level of service and support being delivered in Caritas projects across Greater Manchester and Lancashire.

Which means that everyone who needs it is able to access urgent practical help required, as well as any advice and support that will help them for the long term.

Every single donation matters because it means nobody is turned away or left behind.

These are just some examples of how your donation could be used to provide critical support – right now – or help someone begin to transform their own life with dignity.
