Eight-fold increase in food bank claims
SHERBORNE'S Food Bank has seen a dramatic rise in the number of people needing crisis supplies.
Figures given to the Western Gazette by the charity's founder show that in the past eight months the number of people needing help has risen more than eight-fold.
The Reverend Dr Roy Catchpole (pictured) said 274 individuals were referred to the food bank in September compared to 32 in February when it received charity status.
