Story posted on

WESTBURY Town Council is co-ordinating the effort to deliver food boxes to those unable to get out and those unable to afford food.

Boxes are for sale for delivery at £15 or for those unable to pay free drops are available.

Anyone who needs help can ring 01373 822282 to the helpline between 2pm and 5pm Mondays to Friday or 01373 822232, the council office fro 9am 5pm Monday to Friday – or leave a message outside of those times.

“I have been so heartened by the volunteers offering to help and from the number of local people making donations of food and cash, often by people who have little themselves,” said Mayor Mike Sutton.

“The amount of food upstairs in the Laverton is encouraging and I must thank Westbury public for donating so much, our volunteers for coming out to help and all the council staff who help to organise, package and supply the goods.

“Particular thanks to Morrisons and Aldi who have been very supportive.

Food or donations can be left at the Laverton which is manned Mon -Fri but people need to ring the bell on the council entrance door.”
