“We were keen to take part in Local Charities Day, so donating to our local foodbank seemed like a great way to celebrate.

“Foodbanks are key to meeting the needs of people in crisis within the community.”

David Lennox, of the Salvation Army, said: “We would like to thank the staff at Great Yarmouth and Waveney Mind for their kind donation.

“Donations like this have enabled us to help more than 4000 families already this Christmas.”
