AM Supports Neighbourhood Food Collection

MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay paid a visit to Abergavenny’s Tesco Metro store last Thursday afternoon to show his support for Tesco’s neighbourhood Food Collection in conjunction with the Trussell Trust and Fareshare.

Last week Tesco held the first week long food collection in all its stores across the country.

Speaking after calling in to the Abergavenny store Nick said:

“I was pleased to be able to show my support for this local food collection.

“It was great to hear that since the first collection was held in December 2012 over 15 million meals have been donated across all the participating stores.

“These donations clearly help make a real difference to many people and help Fareshare and the Trussell Trust feed people in need across the UK as well as in our local area.”
