More than 100 people flocked to St Neots foodbank when they opened their doors for a special tour on Saturday (November 16).

The warehouse, on Little End Road, was visited by St Neots Mayor Andrew Hansard, volunteers, trustees, church representatives and members of the public.

Nigel Brittain of Brittains Furnishers in St Neots, who have supported the foodbank, joined them on the day plus St Neots Round Table presented them with a cheque for £580.

Christine Green, trustee of St Neots foodbank, said: “After getting it up and running and getting used to how it all works it really felt as if ‘wow, this is it’. It was quite a moving moment for it all to come together in that public way.”

The foodbank team will be at Tesco Extra in Eynesbury from next Friday- Sunday (November 29-December 1) between 9am and 5pm, where they will be at the store entrance encouraging shoppers to donate specific items from a list for impoverished families in St Neots.
