The Salisbury Foodbank with the help of a local business have been delivering Easter hampers for families in need.

Ninety two families have been supported, equating to more than 380 children and adults, and the contents should do much to help lift spirits at this holiday time.

As well as basic food items the boxes contain a number of goodies – with up to four Easter eggs included.

The food distributed amounted to nearly 2.5 tonnes and this latest initiative has come at the end of what has been the busiest year start for the foodbank ever.

The Easter campaign is another example of the Salisbury community coming together to provide help for those who need it.

A World of Furniture, which has a store in Salisbury, has been helping distribute the items.

The manager of Salisbury Foodbank, Maria Stevenson, said: “This is another great example of the community pulling together. We are only able to deliver these large-scale projects with key partners behind us.

“Schools nominate families, our community gifts the stock, we build it all together and it is delivered by a local business. We were very keen to be able to provide an Easter egg to every family member.

“Therefore, a special thanks is due to Winterslow Churches Together and community for collecting over 400 eggs just for this project and A World Of Furniture for their ongoing distribution support and commitment to the foodbank.”
