Care home’s support for foodbank

Care home residents have been helping to support a county food bank provide vital help for people in need this winter.

Residents, staff and visitors at Astor Court care complex in Cramlington, alongside their friends and family, decided to help support those at The BAY Foodbank with a food donation.

Astor Court has been collecting and donating tinned, dried and packaged food for the charity to distribute to families in crisis.

Care manager Mandy Mackley said: “We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with The BAY Foodbank and helping out those in need in our community.

“We would like to thank everyone who donated for their support.”
