A Corby food bank has received a cash boost thanks for a donation from a local car auction firm.
CD Auction Group, which employs 42 people in Corby and sells used cars to motor retailers, has given £1,000 to the town's Trussell Trust food bank.
They decided to donate the much-needed funds as a 'commitment to the local community this festive season'.
Office manager Jenny Hodson said: “The Trussell Trust helps food banks across the UK, and we wanted to our bit to help people who are having a tough time this Christmas.
