Will Farmer backs Feed a Family campaign with plea for donations
People have been encouraged to get donations in to the Express & Star's Feed A Family This Christmas appeal by TV personality and antiques expert Will Farmer.
We are asking for seasonal treats such as mince pies, chocolates and Christmas puddings, as well as basics including canned goods, long-life milk, fruit juice, pasta and rice.
Will, who is known for his work with the Antiques Roadshow, gave the appeal his backing at a recent charity auction event in Wolverhampton.
He said: "I think this is a great idea and I would urge Express & Star readers to dig deep and find a way to offer a helping hand this Christmas.
"It doesn't take much to make a big difference and any small donations will go a long way.
"No family should have to be facing a Christmas without food and the more donations people make, the less likely that is to happen."
