Mid Ulster District Council is very appreciative to all those in the district who supported and donated so generously to the Christmas food bank appeal.
The Council worked in partnership with a number of local charities and organisations – including SVP, Antioch Food Bank, The Link Maghera and the Magherafelt Food Bank (Trussell Trust) – to try and make Christmas a special time for everyone in the district.
Two food bank appeal events took place last Thursday at the Burnavon, Cookstown and Friday at the Bridewell, Magherafelt and the response from the public was fantastic.
Items collected will help make Christmas a happier time for many families within the district.
