Chris added: “The cost-of-living crisis has affected many across the UK and because of this we have run out of some items that we have never run low on before.

“This is the first time in at least six years we have run low on food. And it is only going to get worse.

“Food Banks throughout the UK are seeing similar issues when it comes to donations.

“We are seeing our food stock running at a deficit each month since January,” said Chris.

He revealed that their running costs have rocketed due to the soaring costs of fuel and electricity but financial donations have fallen.

Chris said: “Please consider donating food at one of our collection points below.”
