A Redditch schoolboy has received a huge boost in donations for his foodbank following a collection drive by a local business.

Studley-based team members from Persimmon Homes South Midlands have been volunteering their time to collect a range of foods to be donated to Friends of Isaac's Food Bank. 

The charity, which was founded in 2020 by 12-year-old Isaac Winfield, aims to help end food poverty in Redditch and the surrounding areas. 

Managing Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, Russell Griffin, said: "What we do is about so much more than building quality homes, it's also about supporting the communities in which we build in a number of ways. 

"At Persimmon, we encourage our team to volunteer their time to causes close to their hearts and it's great to know that our work has had a positive impact on Friends of Isaac's Food Bank CIC." 

The foodbank started as a small greenhouse with goods for the wider community to use during the pandemic. 

It has now grown to three large sheds in the same location as well as a further three sheds dotted around the town.
