RUGBY Foodbank collected more than two tonnes of food at Tesco last weekend.

Since the charity, based at the New Life Church on Railway
Terrace, launched earlier this year over 700 people in Rugby have benefitted from it.

Diana Mansell, chair of Rugby Foodbank, said: “This Christmas will be tough for many local people so Rugby Foodbank is delighted to be part of Tesco’s Help Feed People in Need appeal.

“We’re hoping that many local people will donate at a Tesco store to help stop people going hungry in Rugby this Christmas.”
