Unused fruit, vegetables, cakes and snacks from the locked down Little Theatre has been donated to Sheringham people through care homes and a foodbank.

Soon after the venue had to shut its doors, fruit and veg were delivered to the Crossways and Suncourt care homes in the town. And a batch of cakes has followed.

Box office manager Janet Farrow said: “I did a stock check and found some cakes were heading towards their use by dates, so we also gave them to the homes to enjoy with their afternoon teas.”

This week boxes of biscuits, crisps, snacks and drinks were collected by the Mutual Aid Sheringham foodbank, which is helping people struggling with food poverty during the coronavirus crisis.

One of the MaSH organisers, Jo Powers, collects the goodies from box office manager Janet Farrow.

The theatre is proud of being at the heart of the community as a vibrant arts venue and coffee bar during normal times. And in lockdown it is pleased to support the community which supports it.
