A TOTAL of £530 was raised at a clothing and furniture sale, held by the Isle of Wight Foodbank.
During a coffee morning last Saturday, at Somerton Business Park, Cowes, a wide range of clothes and furniture was sold.
The money raised will help cover office and vehicle costs. The foodbank hopes to find business sponsors to pay for specific things, such as printing and other costs.
Volunteer Sarah Hamilton said: "Demand has exploded since we began here 18 months ago and continues.
"We have no major funding but we are managing to provide a service to those on the Island who find themselves in crisis. No money plus no food equals crisis."
As previously reported, hundreds of people were helped by the Isle of Wight Foodbank over Christmas. It provided food for 560 people during December, helped prevent family breakdowns, housing loss, crime and mental health problems.
