Almost a tonne of food has been donated to a local foodbank in just one day by shoppers from a Lichfield supermarket.
The haul was received at the Waitrose store in the city on August 10.
The donations included one £98 worth of shopping from one member of the public who said she had first-hand experience of using food banks during a time of crisis in her own family.
The Chair of Lichfield Foodbank, David Clarke, said: “The generosity of our supporters across the city and the surrounding areas has made a huge difference to our food stocks as we continue to support families in need during the school holidays.
“We would also like to say a huge thanks to everyone that came along to volunteer – giving out information on our most needed items, answering questions and encouraging customers to donate.”
