SHOPPERS did their bit to help out the Warrington Foodbank.

Volunteers from the foodbank and Warrington Tesco staff collected more than three tonnes of food over two days earlier this month.

John Dolan, project coordinator, said: “Warrington Foodbank is very grateful to Tesco for facilitating the collection and to the general public of Warrington for their amazing generosity. As a result of the collection the foodbank is now much better placed to provide food for families in crisis situations.”

People wishing to donate food or wanting to know more about the foodbank project can email or take food to the foodbank’s warehouse at the YMCA Furniture Store in Time Square between 9am and 3pm Monday to Friday.
