Nigel Drury from the Liss Foodbank spoke on behalf of Bordon, Headley Down, Liphook and Liss local foodbanks who each received £1,000 donated by Woolmer Forest Lions Club at the club’s December meeting.

“The foodbanks so appreciate the support of the Woolmer Forest Lions Club,” he saud. “The efforts of the foodbanks have been growing to meet the increased demand and it is wonderful that the community support of this kind helps us to meet the needs of our communities.”
