We are delighted to have recently supported the Wetherby and District Foodbank with a donation of £500 worth of foodstuffs, or to put it more exactly, a massive 610kg (the weight of 6 baby elephants) of cooking oils, bleaches, detergent sprays, orange squash, long life milk, instant coffee and hot chocolate. 

The Wetherby Food Bank is one of the increasing number of Trussell Trust food banks in the UK and serves the people of Wetherby and district, struggling with economic hardship.

With the additional support of the Wetherby branch of Aldi, who not only helped us by packing everything into crates but also added more items free of charge to ensure each box was full. You can also see pictured, Liam their Manager outside the supermarket with various members of our group.
