Vale AM Jane Hutt, visited a Barry foodbank to praise volunteers for their hard work.

At Tesco in Highlight Park, Jane Hutt also thanked shoppers for their generous donations to the Foodbank.

She went on to express her strong support for the work of the Vale Foodbank which is helping vulnerable families and individuals in our communities across the county.

She said it was clear that Foodbank use in the Vale has been increasing since the first foodbank was started by Coastlands Church.

The most recent distribution centre opened at St Marys Church in Holton Road and is open on Friday afternoons.
