The Ballycastle Foodbank held a food collection in the Ballycastle Co-op store on Saturday.
The Foodbank is part of a ’nationwide network’ which receive support from The Trussell Trust in an attempt to help address food poverty and hunger right across the UK.
Ballycastle Foodbank will be making hampers for those who need some extra help this Christmas.
Speaking at Saturday’s collection, Steven McAuley – member pioneer from the Ballycastle and Bushmills Co-op stores – said: “It was great to see so much community spirit at the food collection, so many people donated very generously to help those in need this Christmas.
”This was also a great opportunity to welcome the food bank, who are also one of this years Ballycastle store Local Causes, in store.
”I would urge anyone who is a Co-op member to go online and choose their preferred cause for their local store.”
