A CHRISTCHURCH lettings agency has nominated the Christchurch Foodbank as their charity of the year.

Jeremy Clarke of Belvoir Lettings said the charity will receive a cheque for £548 after landlords with managed properties donated £2 from their rent received.

The office matched the total figure, with 95 per cent of landlords taking part in the event.

Tracy Blick, from the foodbank, said: “Thank you so much, this is an amazing and generous amount to give.

“Thank you for helping people in our community who are finding themselves in crisis or are struggling at this time.”

This year Belvoir celebrates 10 years in Christchurch and will soon be moving to new offices in the town.
