Community supports Ilkley foodbank
7:00am Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
People have rallied round to support the launch of Churches Together in Ilkley’s new foodbank.
The collection points are at Tesco’s Springs Lane store and Booths supermarket, in Leeds Road.
The food collected will be distributed to families in need as well as through the Salvation Army in Keighley.
Organisers were overwhelmed by the generosity of local people – including a trolley of food left anonymously – and have already been able to help families by distributing the produce.
Most of the local primary schools have also agreed to make the foodbank their harvest collection focus this autumn.
