A food bank that provides essential support to vulnerable members of a Northumberland community has become the latest beneficiary of the Rio Tinto legacy fund.

Wansbeck Valley Food Bank has been awarded £10,000 to maintain adequate supplies for people requiring emergency support.

The donation takes Rio Tinto’s legacy fund spending to more than £550,000 since the closure of the Lynemouth smelter in March 2012.
