A Wisbech estate agent is supporting the town’s foodbank by acting as a collection point for donations of food and toiletries to go into emergency packs.
The Nottingham Building Society and Harrison Murray Estate Agency, known as The Nottingham, will give donations to the foodbank at Hill Street Baptist Church.
The church is part of The Trussell Trust, a charity that hands out over a million three-day emergency food supplies nationally each year to people in crisis.
David Boyce, building society branch manager, said: “There is a growing problem of balancing the budget at home and more and more families are facing hunger and poverty.
“At The Nottingham we pride ourselves on supporting our local communities and this is a practical way we can make a real difference.
“We would like anyone who can help to donate tinned food, pasta, tea, coffee or toiletries, but any non-perishable items would be welcome.”
The collection box is available throughout August and September.
