Vital Foodbank cashes in just in time for Christmas

NEARLY half a tonne of food was generously donated to Woking Foodbank by shoppers at Tesco in Brooklands one weekend in the build up to Christmas.

As a result, clients of the Foodbank, based at The Lighthouse in High Street, were able to start receiving festive parcels along with their standard food supplies ahead of the big day. Councillor Ian Johnson (right), who is Secretary of the charity’s Steering Group, explained: “We have been most grateful for the support from Woking’s residents over the year.

“Apart from our regular food collections at Waitrose and Tesco, churches and more than 20 local schools have kindly donated food for us to distribute in the last few months.”
