There are now more places than ever to donate to Braintree Area Foodbank.

The foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust Foodbank network, has announced four new collection points in Braintree, Witham and Halstead.

Residents can now donate food at libraries in each of the towns, along with Care Dry Cleaners, in Market Street, Braintree.

The collection points have been added on top of the existing drop-offs.

Vanessa Green, a volunteer at Braintree Area Foodbank, said: "The introduction of these four new donation points will really make a difference as more people will be able to donate, not just during the week, but also at weekends.

"We understand that many of those wishing to donate are not always able to get to one of our centres or one of our listed supermarket collection points, which is why we are so excited to add these to our portfolio of donation points."
