Agaecare Foodbank Spalding and similar charities in South Holland have seen goodwill at Easter, rather than Christmas, with donations of food and money from generous supporters.

More than £1,000 and boxes of supplies were given to the foodbank in Spalding, based at The Lighthouse Church, in response to the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian’s first-ever Easter Foodbank Appeal.

Foodbank coordinator Irene Davies said: “Agape means the unconditional love of God and by His continuing grace, along with the ongoing partnership between our volunteers and the community, we continue to show Agape love to our neighbours.”

Volunteers at Holbeach Community Larder, based at the Reading Rooms in Holbeach, and Sutton Bridge Foodbank, based at St Matthew’s Church, also had donations.
