A community group has provided food for thought through a generous donation.

Bridport Lions club made a donation of £200 to the recently reopened Lyme Regis foodbank.

The foodbank, which is open each Wednesday from 10am until midday at The Hub, relies on voluntary donations of suitable products and money in order to operate.

The bank is run by volunteers and LymeForward to help individuals or families in the community who struggle to buy food.

Sheila Burton, president of Bridport Lions Club, said: "One of our members brought LymeForward to our notice having read a recent article about the foodbank.

"The club members all agreed that we would like to donate £200 to the foodbank.

"It is not widely known but Bridport Lions covers from Abbotsbury in the east to Lyme Regis in the west and we are always happy to help where we can."

The money donated by the club will help supplement the foodbank stocks, allowing the team at the foodbank to purchase fresh food for the people who use the service.

The donation has been made in the club's 45th anniversary, and is just another example of how the club is still continuing to work not only within their community, but their neighbouring community.
