Grantham shoppers donate to foodbank




Shoppers at a Grantham supermarket generously donated 930kg of food and items to Grantham Foodbank in just four hours on Saturday.

Foodbank co-ordinator Brian Hanbury thanked customers for their generosity.

He said: “A big thank you to Grantham Asda store and all of its customers. We collected 930kg of long life food in a four hour period. This has a value of approximately £1.800.”

However they are still in need of items including sugar, tea, long life milk, pasta, rice, steamed puddings, rice pudding, deodorant, shaving foam and razors.

The foodbank are now hoping to engage with other supermarkets to hold similar collections including Lidl who already currently have a trolley, Aldi, Morrisons and Sainsburys.

Brian added: “It takes the whole of community to help to restore families dignity, revive their hope and to rebuild local communities.

“We are all about being able to support local people at their point of crisis.”
