Super shoppers have shown their big hearts by donating 9,774 meals to Tesco’s fifth Neighbourhood Food Collection.

The collection, which took place at 17 Milton Keynes stores from November 24-29, is in aid of people in need.

Greg Sage, Tesco’s community director, said: “The response from our customers, colleagues and volunteers has been incredible and it’s thanks to them that our fifth Neighbourhood Food Collection has broken records.

“I’d like to thank everyone who took part – they are the ones who made it all happen. It’s really encouraging that people across the UK see food poverty as an important issue and continue to provide for those in need.”
