Chippenham shopping for food charity
10:00am Friday 7th December 2012 in Chippenham
Shoppers at Tesco Metro in Chippenham donated food to help people in need.
The chain teamed up nationally with food bank charities and the Chipp-enham branch, in Emery Gate, collected its donations over last weekend.
Manager Mel Kervin said: “We asked customers whether they would consider buying something extra. Some were very generous and bought one of every item listed. We had a lot of donations of soup and cereals. In total, we had 46 trays of food that amounted to £646.”
Three Guides from the North Wilts Mountain-eering Club helped. Food was given to FairShare, based in Bristol.
