'Weak economy' fuels demand for Lincolnshire foodbanks


Foodbanks in Lincolnshire have reported a sharp rise in demand for their services this winter.

Agape Care, based in a disused shop in Spalding's Red Lion quarter, said it had seen a large increase in the number of people aged 16-35 needing help.

Foodbanks in Grantham, Lincoln and Skegness have also appealed for more donations to help them keep up with demand.
