The money was donated to provide much-needed stock following the cold weather and snowfall.

The Ely Foodbank has seen an increase of around 14 per cent in users this winter, as people struggle with the cold weather and higher heating bills, stopping them from putting food on the table.

The Ely Hereward Rotary Club used money they raised during their Christmas activities to help the foodbank provide their help to people in need.
