A DESPERATE call for much-needed food by one Littlehampton charity received an overwhelming response, as dozens of selfless people from across the area answered the call.
At the end of last month, the Gazette reported that the Littlehampton Food Larder, run by homeless charity HOMElink, was on the verge of oblivion, after its emergency food supplies dwindled to an all-time low.
However, after the charity put in a desperate plea for help, caring people from across Littlehampton, Wick, Rustington and Angmering rallied around to support the group, donating hundred of cans of food, packets of cereal and dried fruit and vegetables.
Kevin Finnon, operations manager for the charity, added: “The community of Littlehampton is exceptional. The support we received was overwhelming.
“I’d like to thank St Catherine’s Church, the Littlehampton Lions, The Angmering School as well as everyone else who donated.”
The food will now be used to help the area’s most needy families.
To donate food, call 0844 880 0860 or visit the Ark, in Littlehampton’s arcade, or the Meadview Centre, off Lyminster Road.
