DELIGHTED organisers from MK Food Bank are expecting record donations during this week’s Big Little Give appeal.
Already food items are pouring in from Citizen readers, who have been following our adopted charity of the year campaign.
From supermarket giants such as Tesco and Asda to individuals holding collections or coffee mornings, hundreds of people have rallied round.
Korfball fans proved they were great sports when they bought hundreds of donations to Bletchley Leisure Centre at the weekend. This Sunday they will be collecting again at the game between 2pm and 6pm.
Organisers of a St Patrick’s Day dance in Newport Pagnell read about the appeal - and promptly donated the £200 proceeds of their raffle.
Our target is collect 50,000 Food Bank items in just seven days.
These seven days expire on Sunday so, if you haven’t yet donated, pop along to one of the numerous collection points and do your bit. There are Food Bank trolleys at the city’s three main Tesco stores, Asda at Bletchley and the Co-op at Woburn Sands,
Next week we will tell you the total - and how many hungry people it will feed.
