Joanne Bass, director of XL Displays, said: “We have always done a collection for the Food Bank at Christmas time but decided this year to do one in the middle of the year when the bank’s supplies are lower.

She added: “The Food Bank is an invaluable service to so many and I am really pleased we have been able to give so many items to help people in need.”
