Volunteers at the Huntingdonshire Volunteer Centre have received a huge donation to help them continue the work they have been doing in the community.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the team collected food from various supermarkets and food outlets and delivered food parcels and goodie bags to people in the community.
Much of the food was supplied by Waitrose, in St Ives, who has now handed the volunteer centre a cheque to continue its work.
Julie Wilkerson and the team from Waitrose donated the food and Mike Baker, from the volunteer centre, coordinated the delivery.
“We are delighted to receive a cheque for £1,333 to help continue our work and relaunch our community fridge to make it Covid friendly,” said charity shop manager Emma Cameron.
