Raising profile of our foodbanks

I am writing on behalf of the Bexhill Foodbank volunteers in all three centres at Bexhill, Battle and Rye to thank your staff, and especially Laura Cooke, for the high profile you have given both our Foodbank, and Hastings as well, with your Christmas Appeal.

We would also like to thank all those who have donated food and money as a result of the coverage.

I would like to close by wishing all the staff at your newspaper, along with all our donors and voucher holders, a very happy Christmas.
