FULL-UP foodbank collection boxes have been picked up and their contents earmarked for hungry families — but donations still being invited.

Many of the boxes distributed around town for the Food for People in Crisis Christmas campaign have been emptied and removed by appeal organisers said several were still in place so vital supplies can be collected for the new year.

You can also make a cash donation to the appeal, which is organised by the Food for People in Crisis Partnership.

Andrea Cox of Voluntary Action Rotherham said: “We’ve had a good response so far and all the publicity has meant a few private organisations have arranged their own collection, which has bolstered the donations this year.”
