A Wyre Forest foodbank has been given a huge funding boost to support families during the winter months. 

Kidderminster Foodbank generously received £1,000 from mfg Solicitors in a bid to help them meet the rising demand for emergency food and clothing packages. 

The law firm, which has offices on the Birmingham Road, has provided the money through its CSR Committee. 

Senior associate and head of mfg's CSR Committee, Sharon Lerry, said: "Foodbanks provide a lifeline for so many people especially during the winter season. 

"Not only do they make sure families are fed, but they also provide clothing for the young and the elderly at a tine when they need it most. 

"We're delighted to be donating £1,000 to the foodbank and to be supporting their work, much of which often goes unseen. I know they are already putting the money to good use."
