Community projects which feed the poorest people in the community collected more than £1000 at the weekend.

The successful Eat or Heat Spring Fair attracted dozens of families who donated tins, shopped for designer bargains and supported the fun runners.

As well as the foodbank, the Community Kitchen which teaches people how to cook on a budget will benefit from the event.

Gary Nash, co-founder said that it was a “wonderful success” and that everyone involved at St Mary's Welcome Centre had a great time.
