A NOVEL idea by organisers of a Bank Holiday weekend of entertainment has boosted MK Food Bank.

Real Music MK joined forces with the landlord of the Cricketers at Oldbrook to arrange a family fun day, car boot sale and an evening performance by the famous Artful Dodger.

They waived all entrance fees to each of the events, instead asking people to bring along one item from the Food Bank’s list of required items.

“It was a real success and we were delighted to help the charity,” said Real Music’s Kirstie Duffy.

Now the Food Bank is hoping the idea will prove food for thought for other events organisers.
