Grateful to volunteers

Is it possible to thank our local volunteers who run the Wansbeck Valley Foodbank.

The foodbank serves people from Widdrington, Stobswood down to Ellington, Lynemouth onto Ashington, Newbiggin then across to Pegswood and Morpeth.

These volunteers provide an important service.

Hundreds of families have been helped over the past two years and I am sure more will be helped in the future.

Certain myths surround people who use foodbanks - just to leave no one in any doubt, anyone receiving help has to go through a process and be referred, no one can just turn up and receive help.

Merry Christmas to all the volunteers and also our communities for their donations of food.

It is coming up to the festive season, so once again please give a thought to others less fortunate.
