Donations can again be made to the Harrogate District Foodbank

The Harrogate District Foodbank, is again open to donations after completing its move to a larger warehouse space. The Trussell Trust food bank needed additional space to accommodate more supplies due to an increased usage of the bank, as reported by the Advertiser last year. Lucy Stewart of the HDF said: "We are back open for donations after a really busy Christmas period. We have been able to move into a new slightly bigger warehouse to accommodate the larger amount of food we need to keep in stock due to the increased usage in the Foodbank in the Harrogate district. "

She added: "Our next busy period will be the summer, we will need to keep the donations coming in to accommodate the increased usage we expect to see over the summer holidays in July and August."
