Volunteers for a charity that fights food waste have been given t-shirts and aprons to wear in their café.

The donation to Second Helpings in Stamford was made by broadband provider Upp, and the new workwear will be worn for the charity's Saturday café lunch service, which takes place each week from noon at Stamford Methodist Church in Barn Hill.

Upp has also donated crackers, Father Christmas cups and napkins for the Christmas day lunch, along with drinks and chocolates for 200 children’s packed lunches, which will go to families needing additional support during the school holidays.

“We are very grateful to Upp for the donations they have given and our smart, eye-catching new aprons will be worn with pride.”
