Compassion in Action started out in 2006 as a Community coffee morning based at St Mary’s Church Hall, Lowton. The group was set up to provide a place for the community to interact with each other and prevent them from feeling isolated; helping them to get involved with the community and to give them a purpose. This led to the grand opening of our Head Office in Lowton on 9 May 2009.
Donations of toys, clothes, food, small items of furniture – which we then distribute to families in the area – would be very gratefully received. Please bring them to our Head Office or call us to arrange a collection.
Our Delivery and Collections Team and Furniture Restoration Team are based in two separate units at Atherton. They work together to collect, refurbish and deliver to the most vulnerable families in the borough.
Atherton 1 is the base of our Food Distribution network. It consists of our Food Bank and Furniture Warehouse. Hampers are prepared on site and we co-ordinate our deliveries from the on-site offices. It is also where we clean our furniture.
Atherton 2 is where the furniture is refurbished, recycled and prepared for distribution. It consists of our spray shop and furniture repair area as well as our joinery section. Skilled staff share their skills with volunteers and work placements, who all work together to create furniture packages.
