The charity has been running the appeal throughout October in order to boost supplies in its food banks.

These are open weekly at both the Terence Brown Arc in the Park site and the Glyn Hopkin Abbey Hub in Stratford, and aim to provide food for those most in need. This includes young parents and those in temporary accommodation as well as people living in poverty.

Kevin Jenkins, the founder of AAA, said: “A wonderful donation of core basic foods that will help us greatly in continuing to support disadvantaged children and their families, through the difficult winter months ahead.”
