A Norfolk foodbank has thanked people for their continued generosity through the coronavirus outbreak.

Mid Norfolk Foodbank has thanked people for their support both with food donations and gifts of money despite the restrictions caused by Covid-19.

Dave Pearson, project manager for the foodbank, said: “We have been greatly encouraged by the continued support for the foodbank from the local communities around Dereham, Swaffham and Fakenham since the start of the coronavirus crisis.

“Despite some food shortages people have continued to make donations and where that has not been possible they have made money donations.”

The three foodbanks will remain open for those who need food in the coming weeks.
