An Oswestry supermarket has joined forces with a foodbank to give donations over Christmas.

Sainsbury’s Community Fund has seen members of staff donate toiletries to support Women’s Shelters around Shropshire.

The fund has also allowed them to buy a microwave to enable Oswestry Foodbank to offer hot food for their homeless service users.

Tammy Williams, from Sainsbury’s said: “Liz Jermy from the Foodbank is kindly liasing with the Women’s Refuge Team.

“I am overwhelmed with the generosity of my colleagues.”

Sainsbury’s staff presented the microwave and donations to Liz last week.
