KIND staff at a Wyre Forest homeless charity have donated sweets for youngsters who use the Kidderminster Foodbank over Christmas.

Staff at Wyre Forest Nightstop joined with volunteers from Lloyds Bank to make packs of sweets for children whose families use the Kidderminster Foodbank, based at Baxter Church Hall, in The Bull Ring.

The sweets were donated to Foodbank volunteers at Nightstop's Christmas coffee and cake event recently.

Maureen Lewis, Kidderminster Foodbank manager, said: "Once again Nightstop have come up trumps much to the delight of the children who come to our Foodbank.

"We are always so grateful to be able to co-ordinate our care of the needy community with another charity.

"Nightstop are not only donors, but also regular referral agents and we are able to help the young people who go to them and to their linked group Axis, who care for the older ones - so we can co-ordinate our services to the families of the Wyre Forest."

Judith Ford, chief executive of Wyre Forest Nightstop, added: "We are delighted to have teamed up with the volunteers from Lloyds Bank Kidderminster to make sweetie packs for children benefitting from the Foodbank over Christmas.

"We are extremely fortunate in the Wyre Forest to have a caring community who pull together to support those who are less fortunate.

"Thanks to everyone who has supported Nightstop and the Foodbank during 2017 - our services would be greatly reduced without your help."
