Festive food collections

The girls and boys of Otters Scout Group in Bromsgrove donated boxes of food items to local charity Newstarts as part of a reverse advent calendar.

The youngsters (above) donated an item each week in the run-up to Christmas, and Newstarts used the donations to support food parcels for families in need across Bromsgrove.

Newstarts chief executive Marion Kenyon said, “We are very grateful for all the food items and would like to thank everyone who donated.”

Two bags of food were collected and given to a Catshill village foodbank.
