Petersfield Food Bank is amazing when it comes to feeding people who might struggle to pay for sustenance.

But did you know they also help out the less fortunate with other essential daily items, like washing powder and pet food?

Household essentials are high on the wish list for this week with supplies of cleaning sprays, deodorant and baby wipes running low.

Donations of washing powder and liquid could also do with topping up, along with nappies in sizes five to seven.

Well-wishers who would like to put something in their basket for the food bank have also been encouraged to donate tins of meat and tomatoes to the good cause based in the Methodist Church, with sweet treats like KitKats also being welcomed.

Shoppers will find donation points in the town’s supermarkets, for more details about the Food Bank and referrals visit
