    Councillors in the West of Shropshire have given a big 'thank you' on behalf of the food banks in Bishops Castle and Worthen for the help they have received from Tesco, Morrisons and the Co-op.

    Chirbury and Worthen Shropshire Councillor, Heather Kidd said: "The Food Bank has been very active supplying local families, individuals and couples. People who have never had to ask for help before are facing very difficult times. Our Care in the Community Group would not have been able to do this without the help of Tesco's in Welshpool and their local worker from Brockton who is working her socks off for us. Tesco's have and continue to work with us to make sure we are able to supply our emergency food parcels both in free food and subsidised food.
