Suzy champions the cause of all those hungry people
8:40pm Wednesday 8th August 2012 in News
A WORCESTER supermarket has donated £175 worth of food items to the city’s new foodbank to help those who cannot afford to buy food.
Suzy Roberts, Tesco community champion for the store in Mill Wood Drive, Warndon Villages, visited the Worcester Foodbank on Monday with items weighing in at 112.9kgs, including rice pudding, tins of meat, fruit juice and cereals.
She was inspired to donate to the foodbank, in Carden Close, off City Walls Road, after arranging a visit there.
She said: “It made a real impression on me to think that people in Worcester do not have enough money to buy food, something that I don’t even think about and obviously, working at Tesco, see people buying food all the time.”
A collection day will also be held at the store on Friday, August 17.
Customers will be encouraged to buy one extra item and donate it for those in need as they leave the store.
