Staff at the Barrow-based Total Foodservice have made a welcome donation to the Ribble Valley Foodbank.

The donation, which weighed in at just less that a quarter of a ton, was delivered to the Foodbank’s Salthill warehouse on Friday.

Joanne Crook, from Total Foodservice accounts department who helped co-ordinate the collection, said: “Every year in the run up to Christmas we support a local charity. This year we decided that we wanted to make a real difference to those people, who through no fault of their own were really going to struggle putting food on their tables this Christmas and over the coming months. We researched local foodbanks and immediately saw what an important and essential job the Ribble Valley Foodbank were doing on our doorstep.”

The company operates from two depots based in Clitheroe in Lancashire and Huddersfield in West Yorkshire. All inquiries should be directed to 01254 828330 or via www.totalfoodservice.co.uk
