Commenting, Mark said:
“The Instant Neighbour foodbank it is a lifeline to so many people in our city. I hope that in making it easier to donate food items, more people will be able to donate to the foodbank and as soon as possible.
“It is sad that we have a situation where people in a wealthy city need the support for foodbanks, but while the situation persists we should call upon the generosity of our city, and answer the call to fill up the foodbank shelves for those who need it most.
“I absolutely urge everyone who is able to, to donate food items to Instant Neighbour either at their Woodside premises, at the donation box at my constituency office or by making a cash donation direct to Instant neighbour.”
