A group donated a trolley to the borough’s foodbank as part of a campaign to celebrate 90 years of its work in the community.

The Inner Wheel organisation of Northwick Park collected the money to buy a new trolley for Harrow Foodbank.

This year the organisation is marking 90 years of work in the UK.

As part of celebrations, clubs around the country have been taking part in the Wheels Project in which they have to raise money for a cause involving wheels.

President of the Northwick Park Inner Wheel Maureen Sullivan said: “We wanted to raise money for a cause that helped people all over Harrow and the foodbank was perfect.

“It really helps the people in the borough and we hope the trolley will help them with their work.”

Members of the organisation attended the foodbank’s drop-off centre in Wealdstone to drop off the trolley and a cheque for £150.

Inner Wheel, which is the world’s largest women's organisation, has more than 21,000 members in 786 clubs across Great Britain and Ireland.

Harrow Foodbank was founded in May last year and provides three days of emergency food to people referred by any 12 partner organisations.
