“Salford Food Parcels are our closest food bank and are based from Emmanuel church, they again are supporting our local community in need.”

The association and two charities are non-profit, choosing to volunteer to help others around Salford.

Smith said: “We are all volunteers…it is time consuming but it’s worth it due to the feedback we receive from people we support.”

On November 7th, Buile Hill Mansion Association’s supported the charity, Wrap Up Salford. Their event received incredible support by Salford locals.

Smith added: “We are extremely lucky as we are really well supported by people of Salford.

“Every collection we have done has surpassed all our expectations.

“Salford people are truly brilliant at supporting each other.”

After so many successes, Buile Hill Mansion Association continues to help other charities around Salford to help out their locals.
