Housing association donates to Plymouth Foodbank
STAFF from a housing association have donated much-needed items to the Plymouth Foodbank.
Employees from Devon and Cornwall Housing's (DCH) Ker Street office have been collecting food for the charity, which is based at the Oasis Project in the Crown Centre in Stonehouse.
DCH has joined up with the Oasis Project to provide funding for a new projector, which will help deliver regular food and hygiene courses.
Plymouth Foodbank co-ordinator Katy Bartlett said: "We are very grateful to the staff at DCH, who have been very generous donating food to the Foodbank which will help us meet increasingly high demand.
