Keen artists helped raise money for Rugby Foodbank by holding an exhibition.

Brownsover Art Group chose the charity because a foodbank is held at Christchurch every Friday.

Sue Dean, chair of the group, said the artists meet weekly at the church, in Helvellyn Way.

They gave £50 to the foodbank and £50 to the church.

She said: “We wanted to do something to help because it’s a charity close to home.”

John Hemmings received the donation on behalf of Rugby Foodbank.

He said he was delighted to receive the money.
