A local food bank has received support with a new charity partnership for 2016, as it aims to provide for vulnerable people across the borough.

Citygate Food Plus helps families and individuals as it works with charities and businesses to redistribute food.

The food bank is now set to work with intu, Bromley’s main shopping centre, as it receives donations.

As well as providing food, the service also offers advice to those visiting.

Citygate Food Plus Operations Manager Michael Reid said: “This is fantastic news for Citygate Food Plus and presents us with an exciting opportunity to engage with the wider community in new and creative ways.

“Working alongside an organisation such as intu, will significantly enhance our efforts to expand our reach and fulfil our vision of supporting the most vulnerable members of the community.”

intu Bromley marketing manager Craig Higgins said: “We are looking into a number of activities throughout the year to support the charity and our guests will also get the chance to lend their support with non-perishable food donations at donation points that will be set up within the centre shortly.”
