Marion Dennis, from the salon, which is allowed to trade despite further restrictions as it is in tier two, said: ‘We have been collecting for our Christmas charity since returning to work from the November lockdown.

‘Meon Valley Food Bank was selected, and staff and clients have pulled together, collecting boxes of food items and an amazing £250. It was a great achievement.

‘Going back to work, with full Covid precautions in place, after such a difficult time for so many, it was rewarding, positive and team building to think of others at Christmas.’

The Meon Valley Food Bank is church led and community focused charity, which helps families at crisis point through food parcels.

The service is run by volunteers and is open every Tuesday from 10am to 2pm, based in the Bishop’s Waltham Youth Hall, Malt Lane.
