Tesco Collections

Thank you to everyone who helped in some way with the Tesco collections in July. We now have over 5 tonnes of food in various storage locations in the area.


Ashby foodbank is looking for a store room in the area that could hold 10 tonnes of non-perishable food. Can you help? Please contact us.
