Customers who donated items during a supermarket’s collection have helped two foodbanks.

Tesco in Brandon held their second Foodbank Local event where customers were encouraged to donate items.

All together 23 trays of food were collected.

The food was split between the Lakenheath Food Bank and The Harvest Centre Food Bank in Weeting.

“It really makes me proud of our community spirit.”
