Food banks in Ashfield are set to get a boost with a £500 donation from the Chad and Idlewells community fund.

This cash will be divided throughout the several food banks running throughout the area.

“We do have a Food Bank collection point here in the Idlewells, but we believe that giving to Food Banks is not something that the public are particularly tuned into yet,” Said Chloe O’Donnell, Assistant Manager at Idlewells.

“We hope that, as well as providing much needed donations of food, we can help raise awareness of Food Banks - and their importance to the local community.”

The remaining £500 will be donated to a charity - which is yet to be chosen.
