THE KINGS Food bank in Kendal is very busy now so needs donations of non-perishable food.

If you can donate some you can ring Jenny Brindle from the Underbarrow Support Group on 68161 and she will collect it from your door.

Otherwise the current collection points for food donations are the Shakespeare Centre (Tues, Wed, Fri 12-3pm), or Asda, Booths, Morrisons, Yorkshire Bank, Virgin Money, and NatWest.

Financial donations can be made to account 83371220 sort code 20-45-28, thank you.

AS PUBLIC libraries are closed, the Underbarrow Support Group has stated a Book Exchange, contact Chloe on 07920579655 if you have books to donate or would like to borrow a book.

There is also a website, where you can browse the books available, and request a book which can then be delivered to you.

Thank you to Chloe for this innovative scheme.
