Team members from the alliance, working on the East Coast Main Line Power Supply Upgrade Project, staged a number of fundraising events in support of the food bank and have also been able to donate a further £320, which was raised through its staff suggestion and recognition scheme.

On receiving the donation, Martin Donnelly, warehouse manager for the Trust's Christ Church food bank said: "The alliance's donation of toiletries and general supplies is very much appreciated. This has helped us restock these much needed items, which will now be redistributed at our Christ Church food bank, as well as our satellite sites at Rossington and Bentley."

Alliance director Rod Moorcroft added: "As a Doncaster based organisation, we're always looking for ways to give something back to the community. We're delighted to be able to lend our support to the Trussell Trust and its Doncaster food bank, which provides an invaluable service to the community."
