A charity bottle bank scheme which has raised over £30,000 for research into multiple sclerosis since its launch almost 30 years ago is being threatened with closure due to cost-cutting.

Well-known Longridge resident John Farmery started the banks in 1986 in memory of his wife, Elaine, a multiple sclerosis (MS) sufferer.

Over the years, Longridge has given strong support to the former pet shop owner’s fundraising initiative.
