A FAMILY have been praised for donating almost 20kg of food to a food bank.

Dave and Rachael Partridge along with their two daughters have been collecting for Thurrock Food Bank throughout the past few weeks.

A spokesman for the food bank said: “Thank you to the Partridge family for coming over to the warehouse this month.

“They have collected an item of food for every day through Lent, which weighed in at 19.6kg.

“Thank you for your kindness in thinking of our clients, we really appreciate it.”

The Partridge family thanked the food bank for the work they have done in the last year.
