Boss’s thanks

Have your say

THE boss of a new foodbank has praised the public’s generosity for providing almost a tonne of food for local people in need.

Ali James, manager of Thetford Foodbank, was delighted at shoppers’ response as 949.15kg of food was donated at Tesco, near Kilverstone, on December 23.

“Giving a simple foodbox to a family or individual in crisis can make such a difference.

“Going to bed hungry is a reality for more people than we would like to think,” she said.
