Lowton

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 space for young mothers, pensioners and disabled people to interact with others and prevent them from feeling isolated. The coffee morning was a great way to get people involved with the community and give them a purpose. This led to the grand opening of our Head Office on 9th May 2009.

Our Head Office takes donations of toys, clothes, food, small items of furniture which we then distribute to families in the area. If you have any items to donate to our charity, please take them to our office in Lowton or call us to arrange a collection.

In January 2016, Compassion in Action Community Outlet opened its doors and is situated next to our outreach centre.

Families on low income can browse through our furniture, household items, clothing and toys and can also have items delivered – all at a cost affordable to themselves.

The kind and generous donations from the local community and wider borough have benefited many people.
