A teenage girl has donated festive treats to a food bank in Romford.

Isabel Hegarty, 13, dropped off around £300 worth of items at the Collier Row and Romford Food Bank in Market Place.

Among the goodies were selections of chocolates, biscuits and sweets as well as essential products such as toiletries.

The Sacred Heart of Mary Girls' School student, from Romford, has now provided around £600 worth of items to the food bank, after a similar donation in September.

Isabel also made and sold personalised hand sanitisers and donated her profits to the food bank.
