Shoppers in the Moorlands have helped to spread some goodwill.
Central England Co-operative has said ‘thank you’ to customers and members across the region after they donated over 75,000 items in support of the Christmas Food Bank Appeal.
The retailer hosted a special five-week appeal in an effort to bring a little festive cheer and provide emergency food and support to individuals and families in crisis and the appeal helped to create more than 30,000 meals for people in need.
Over 15,000 items a week were donated and, in total, over 75,000 were collected in just a matter of weeks.
This allowed for the creation of special food parcels that were handed out to provide over 30,000 meals during the festive period.
