Just over a ton of food has been donated to Ribble Valley Foodbank during a three day-long collection at Clitheroe’s Tesco supermarket.

“Thanks also go to the Tesco staff for their great support for this collection, and to Tesco for topping up this collection with 30% in cash,” said the foodbank’s manager Ruth Haldane.

A total of 45 volunteers helped make the collection possible by giving out leaflets as well as collecting and sorting the food.

Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans MP also called in on Saturday to support the collection.
