Steve Frost, the store manager, said: “This is what the Co-op is all about. We help local charities and schools. When Emmanuel Church contacted us, we were delighted to help.

“We already have links with the church through their Food Share project where they collect food from us which is going out of date and deliver it to homeless charities and hostels.”

Canon Frank Scammell of Emmanuel Church, said: “We have a regular hamper ministry for community families. On Fridays, we do cooking classes and in school holidays, we do community meals. The £250 is so welcome and will go towards this.

“We are very grateful to the Co-op and the staff here who help so much.”
