Eurasia staff in Bridgnorth collected food for the town’s food bank and delivered meals to NHS workers at Bridgnorth Community Hospital.
Take-out meals were provided to two families registered with the food bank, delivered by volunteers Rachel Connelly and Charlotte Round.
Liz Bird, director of Bridgnorth Food Bank, said: “If anyone needs help claiming benefits, housing, debt, financial problems or food during this very difficult time, please contact your housing provider, the Shropshire Council, the social worker or the CAB to get through this route immediately, then you can get a referral to the food bank and for any other support you need. There is support and sometimes you need to have the courage to call or email to get the ball rolling.
Councilor Julia Buckley thanked the volunteers for helping out with the donation. She said: “What a great network of volunteers we have found on every street in our town.
