Generous gym goers from Curves have donated 695lbs of food for the Arena Church’s community food bank.

The gym runs the food drive every year but this year’s donations exceeded all expectations and smashed last year’s total, which was 280lbs.

Sally Peacock, owner of Curves, said: “I’m constantly amazed at the generosity of the members here at Curves, they’ve been so generous.

“I am so pleased we’ve managed to collect such a large amount which will all go to help local people.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated.”
