Over 100 boxes donated to Reverse Advent Calendar appeal

Over 100 boxes of food were donated as part of an appeal to make sure everyone on the Island has enough food this Christmas.

The Isle of Man Food Bank asked the public to take part in it's Reverse Advent Calendar by putting aside one item of food per day in the run up to Christmas.

The charity announced it received well over 100 boxes, some of which have already been distributed to those in need in the north of the Island.

Items of fresh vegetables and mince pies will go to the homeless charity Graih, while other items have been sent to St Christophers.
