Clay Cross foodbank 'busier than ever' as the pressure of the pandemic continues to build

We've been speaking with Kay Adlington, who works there.

Volunteers at the Clay Cross foodbank say they're delivering supplies to vulnerable residents who need them the most.

Administrator Kay Adlington says demand has gone up throughout the coronavirus pandemic;

"We've seen a lot of vouchers issued by schools. Many parents don't know what they're going to do next week, with the children being off.

"Therefore, a lot of schools have issued preventative vouchers for the parents of pupils."

She also told us demand has never been higher;

"Jobs aren't quite as secure as they were a few weeks ago. People are more likely to be moving onto benefits, or off of benefits onto temporary contracts, so that can create a need for us to provide assistance.

"If you do need our help though, please don't hesitate to contact us."
