MKFM’s studio was left buried in tin cans after receiving more than 1,500 donations for the Milton Keynes Food Bank.

The newly launched radio station launched an on air appeal after the revelation record numbers rely on food from the Food Bank.

Before long, listeners were bringing tins to their pod outside Xscape and afternoon presenter Oliver Dean was left surrounded by rice pudding and fruit juice.

Rebecca Savage from MK Food Bank said: “This is fantastic, I can’t thank MKFM and everyone involved enough.

“Milton Keynes has long needed its own radio station and with initiatives like this I believe MKFM will make a massive difference in our community.”

MKFM’s Darren Dorrington said: “People are struggling to feed themselves and we wanted to do this to remind people in MK to keep making donations at the Food Bank’s drop off points but we were blown away by the response - this is exactly what local radio is all about.”
