Downham's food bank has issued an urgent video appeal on Facebook.

The charity, which runs from the Eternity Centre in Downham is looking for a new place to operate from.

"Eternity have been great, but they need the hall back to earn revenue for the church.

"We are looking for somewhere to store the food,

"It doesn't have to be big but it needs to have running water and electricity,

"This is an appeal for help, if you could lend us or we could rent a place. Please get in touch.

"We need it to be as soon as possible."
