Thieves have raided a foodbank in Oldham, stealing equipment, food, and money.

The break-in was at the Oldham Foodbank, which is run by the Trussell Trust charity.

The charity tweeted that they were determined to open today, despite the break-in, and thanked all those who has supported them with more donations to replace what was taken.

We are overwhelmed with the support, wishes and offers of help following our break in. We will not let an individual or individuals stop us from helping those in crisis and need. We will be open tomorrow as normal, but please bear with us it may take a little longer than normal.
