Volunteers packed over 150 parcels to support struggling families on free school meals in Ilkley this Easter.

Becky Malby, of Ilkley Great Get Together said: "Thanks to Bradford Council (£7,280) and Ilkley Town Council (£3640) we have been able to provide food parcels and vouchers at Christmas, February half term and Easter. But we couldn't do it without the amazing donations from Ilkley residents, businesses and charities. This Easter Sacred Heart ran a homemade biscuit competition to provide treats for the parcels. Loafer Baker made hot cross buns for every family; Soroptimists, Clevedon House knitters, and Ilkley Scrubs knitters provided 200 knitted chicks; and we had amazing donations from Ilkley folk who baked and bought biscuits, Easter eggs, and cakes. Tesco provide boxes and Morrisons provides food. The foodbank helps with store cupboard food and 30 volunteers collected food and packed. The schools make sure all the parcels get to families in need, and IGS hosts all the packing. Thank you all."
