“Neighbourly carries out vital work in the community, so we’re proud to be able to support them and the charities, foodbanks and community groups they work with in Yorkshire in their efforts to support those who may be struggling.”

Steve Butterworth, CEO of Neighbourly, added: “The impact of the cost-of-living crisis has intensified, meaning that the demand on foodbanks is continuing to increase, particularly during the school holidays.
