Rutland Foodbank collection point opens at Briars Convenience Store and Post Office in Churchill Road, Oakham, after inspiration from Richard Branson
A postmaster and shop owner has taken inspiration from Richard Branson to open up a foodbank collection point in Oakham.
Indy Gill will be donating to the Rutland Foodbank from the Briars Convenience Store and Post Office on Churchill Road.
He said: “I want to help the community and the public.
“There are people out there struggling and not living under a proper roof.
“It’s so important to make sure that we are helping and supporting them.
“I'm also a big fan of Richard Branson, especially all of the charity work he does.
"It would be great if he could visit Rutland one day."
Sealed and in-date food, especially tins, is welcome and will be donated to the food bank.
