A LOCAL branch of an environmental activist group will be continuing with their two tin Tuesday challenge.

Extinction Rebellion is organising their second collection of food for Kings Food Bank in Kendal for their ‘two-tin Tuesday’ on June 9th. Dozens of boxes of food were donated by the public at 22 collection points across Kendal. It came after a hugely successful collection organised by XR Furness in Ulverston and Barrow.

Volunteer, Catherine Rennie-Nash said: “This is such a good way for people who may not be able to donate at their supermarket, due to self-isolating, to be able to give to their community."
