Train users can do their bit for a good cause as c2c has launched a collection for food banks at its stations.
Passengers can donate long-lasting food items such as tins, rice, pasta and cereals at any station served by c2c, including Limehouse and Fenchurch Street.
The food will then be donated to one of five food banks along the line, including the Tower Hamlets food bank near Fenchurch Street.
Group station manager Julie Davis is helping to coordinate the appeal.
She said: “We started this as a community appeal among our staff, but then realised our stations provide the perfect opportunity for our customers to get involved too.

“Local food banks play a vital role and always need more donations, so anyone who wants to donate items can just drop them off at their local station.”
