As we know, money is a bit tight for lots of families. So, getting some free stuff adds a little hope. What better feeling than free food along with an impressive range of free kitchen equipment for the school holidays!
Thanks to grant funding from Blackburn with Darwen Help Hub and the ongoing generosity of the Rummage Rescuers community, some of your favourite kitchen things are at the Rummage Rescuers Warehouse. Bakeware, tableware, and the appliances to cook with. Whether you need a slow cooker or replacement oven, you can ask for help.
The Blackburn with Darwen Council Covid Winter Grant Scheme 2020/2021 is for eligible local families and vulnerable adults. Help is for gas bills, electric, replacement cooker, fridge and more.

During the Easter school holidays, the volunteers at Rummage Rescuers are here to help.
