FOODBANK donations to a Whitchurch estate agent have helped contribute to a 15,000 strong collection of items from across the nation.

Barbers estate agents have helped to collect the items as part of a Relocation Agent Network drive – #RANFoodbank10k.

This is the second year that Relocation Agent Network has hosted such an event, which coincided with Agents Giving’s ‘Support Your Local Foodbank’ event on June 20.

Agents Giving is a UK-based charity that works with estate and letting agents and their suppliers to encourage and support fundraising activities.

Barbers managing director, Mike Arthan, said, “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to visit our offices and make a donation.

"Without them, Relocation Agent Network would never have exceeded their 10,000 target to reach a staggering 15,000 items.

"The response from our staff and the public alike was incredible and we’re very proud to have helped foodbanks across Shropshire.”
