AN appeal by a food bank for donations was a resounding success last weekend.

Supporters of Porch Boxes staged a collection at the Methodist Church in Tottington on Saturday.

And despite bad weather, locals managed to pack out two cars with gifts for the harvest-themed push.

A spokesman said: "It was a magnificent effort by the community and the result was far in excess of that usually collected."

Porch Boxes volunteers , who were at the church for an hour from 10am, have thanked residents for their generosity.
