A toddler group this week donated almost 150 kilos of food to Weston-super-Mare Foodbank.

Batch Buddies, in Worle, handed over 146.5 kilos of long-life food and toiletries to the charity, which will distribute the wares to families and individuals in crisis.

The group, which creates a place for toddlers and their childminders to go and meet other children and carers, chose the charity to teach the youngsters about giving back.

Leading childminding practitioner Lizzy Weeks said she was ‘incredibly proud’ of what they had achieved.

She added: “We wanted to be able to embed good ethics into our children and teach them about their community and how not everyone is as lucky as they are.

“The response was fantastic and some of the older children really understand why we were doing it.

“It was amazing to see how much we have collected and how it will change people’s lives.”
