The Isle of Man Foodbank is thanking the Manx public for its kindness and generosity after being inundated with donations for its reverse advent calendar appeal.

The organisation asked people to put aside one item each day in the run up to Christmas before dropping it off for those less fortunate yesterday.

So many packages were donated yesterday that the Foodbank had to issue an appeal for more storage space.

In October, the House of Keys heard that over 100 people have relied on the support of the Foodbank in recent months.
