KEIGHLEY housing group Incommunities has given a boost to two district foodbanks.

Donations of £1,000 each have been presented to the Bradford Metropolitan and Bradford Central foodbanks.

The causes were chosen through a staff vote.

Janey Carey, executive director of customer and communities at Incommunities, says: "We have a strong relationship with the foodbanks across the Bradford district thanks to the vital work they do supporting local people.

"So it’s great that our colleagues also recognise this fantastic work and chose the foodbanks to benefit from the donations.

"Our staff support local communities across the Bradford district."

Graham Walker, of Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank, said: "We are a small, registered charity, which receives donations of non-perishable foods from the community and businesses to give to organisations working with vulnerable people in need of food.

"We have given out over 15,000 bags in 2023, and this was only possible because of the efforts of our co-ordinator and volunteers, and the generosity of individual and corporate donors.

"We are grateful to Incommunities for its vital and continued support."
