Exmouth Food Larder received a bumper donation at the end of October thanks to a shopping spree by Exmouth Rotarians.

Members of the Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh donated the food to the foodbank to help ‘the less fortunate in Exmouth’.

The larder is managed by volunteers in association with the Exmouth Salvation Army, with social services to ensuring food is directed to the correct recipients.

Volunteers check food for damage and make sure items are within their “use by” dates, ensuring items can be given out safely.

Treasurer Bob Worrell said: “The Exmouth Raleigh Rotary is very pleased to support local charitable causes, and welcome anybody, male or female who would consider joining the group.

“We meet around thee times a month and have guest speakers, social events and fund raising projects. Please look at our web site to gain a full picture of the club and find contact details.”
