A Rotary Club has presented a cheque for £2,000 to Andover's Foodbank.

The contribution from Anton Rotary Club, was presented by club president Ian McLeod to Jenny LeLean, the manager of Andover Foodbank, at a time when the squeeze on family incomes is driving more families to seek additional help.

The money will help the foodbank to purchase some of the essential food items needed to assemble the food boxes that are given to individuals and families struggling through these difficult  times.
