Harpenden resident Fran Hocken adds her donation to the many items given by shoppers at Sainsbury’s and destined for the food bank covering Harpenden and St Albans.
Standing at the entrance to the supermarket, members of Rotary in Harpenden invited shoppers to add some non-perishable food and essential toiletries to their baskets and trolleys and, as they left, place them to the food bank’s crates.
“The response from Harpenden people was immense,” said Rotary in Harpenden President Richard Young. “More than 400 kilos of food were donated. Those shoppers who responded to our appeal should know that, thanks to their generosity, fewer families will need to skip meals in the coming weeks.”
