More than 2,000 meals have been provided to people in need this Christmas thanks to customer donations at Tesco in Sudbury.

Supermarket shoppers were asked to donate long-life items to help people in need and Tesco topped up the value of customer donations by 20%.

Thanks to the generosity of customers, this year’s collection has seen more than £3million meals donated nationally.

In Sudbury, a total of 2,267 meals were donated to charities FareShare and The Trussell Trust thanks to the collection, which ran until December 2.

Lindsay Boswell, CEO at FareShare, said: “The food donated at the Tesco food collection will make a tremendous difference to the thousands of charities and community groups that FareShare supports.

“These groups are doing amazing work with some of the most vulnerable people in our community.

“We’d like to thank everyone who donated, as well as all the volunteers who made the store collections such a success.”
