Insurance broker A-Plan is collecting donations for the Alton food bank at its Normandy Street offices.

A-Plan manager Lee Beckett said: “The cost-of-living crisis is having a huge effect on local food bank charities this year.

“Not only are they receiving more requests for support as our community struggles with the increased energy bills and food prices, but increased demand earlier in the year has also left food banks without a stockpile.”
