Donations are again being accepted for Norwich Foodbank in the run-up to Christmas at tyre centres across the region.

STS Tyre Pros centres are taking donations until December 15 to help the neediest families in the area.

Donations are being gathered at the centres in Holt, Norwich, Wymondham, Swaffham, Acle, Lowestoft, Wisbech, and Watton.

The foodbank needs shower gel and shampoo, long life fruit juice and sponge puddings, tinned ham and fruit, biscuits, and UHT milk, among other items. A spokesman for STS Tyre Pros said: “Anything tinned or long life, really.”

Last year they raised more than half a tonne of food from mid-November through to mid-December.

Rob Gainsborough, manager at STS Holt, said: “This year we aim to beat that total and maybe even raise a tonne. I really hope you will get behind us again, as I know how much difference it made last time.”
