Whitefield Teenager Savvy Shopping

Lily Shatliff aged 19, took to the shops this month after seeing a Facebook post on one mum’s minuscule food parcel supplied from her school with the Government initiative of Free School meals. After volunteering with the Pankhurst Trust who work with Banardos and The Manchester Women’s Aid, Lily knew all too well the impact on families trying to cook a meal on the meagre supplies being offered. Taking some of her own savings the Whitefield teenager showcased her impressive haul on Social Media. Proud Mum Kate told Your Local BURY Magazine, “Lily took great care to select the best combinations of food, to make the most meals for her budget and even tried to make sure the family had a small treat of biscuits in the parcel. Lily is on furlough herself and was upset with the thought of a family struggling and children going hungry.” The food parcel was delivered to a family through Home Start.
