STAFF at Worcestershire accountants Ormerod Rutter put their own Christmas wishes to one side to help a local charity.

Employees from the firm’s offices in Droitwich and Bromsgrove collected a wide range of items for Droitwich Food Bank, which is based at the town’s Baptist Church in Ombersley Street East. The collection was co-ordinated by the secretarial services department and the festive haul delivered to the food bank earlier this week.

Ormerod Rutter partner Alex Dyer said: “All of my colleagues have been extremely generous and we have managed to fill 17 bags of food.”

Staff also took part in Christmas Jumper Day, raising £200 for Save the Children.
