A trio of fast food restaurants have donated more than £1,000 to Weston Foodbank.

The town’s three McDonald’s branches collected money and items from customers while franchisee Tim Lamb, who owns the three restaurants, donated £1 for every transaction made at the town centre branch and for every car at the Winterstoke Road and Worle Queensway sites on December 9.

He said: “We are very proud to support the foodbank for the third year.

“It is a very worthwhile organisation and at this time of year we feel it is especially important to continue to support our local community.”

Frederique Wigmore, manager at Weston Foodbank, added: “We are so grateful to receive support from local businesses like McDonald’s in Weston.

“It is so heartwarming to see so many members of our community support our work to make a difference in our town.”
