A foodbank is set to be more efficient as new kitchen units are donated and fitted.

Wickes in King's Lynn has generously donated new kitchen units to St Mary's Church Foodbank in Great Massingham, aiming to bolster the efficiency of food storage and distribution performed there.

This donation, as part of the Wickes Community Programme, supports St Mary's role in the community, especially as it has seen a surge in demand from families experiencing financial difficulties.

The church warden at St Mary’s Church Foodbank, Stephen Hudson, said: “Thanks to Wickes for their kind and generous gift for our cupboards in the church.

"The foodbank is an integral part of the church and village of Great Massingham and was started during the Covid lockdown in 2020.

"Its success has been overwhelming”

Reinforcing the importance of the donation, Glen Hammond, design consultant at Kings Lynn Wickes, said: "Seeing our kitchen units assist St Mary’s Church Foodbank in their invaluable work brings us immense joy and reinforces our commitment to giving back to the communities we serve."

The Wickes Community Programme is open for more improvement projects.
