    The Brentwood Community Hub brings together a number of voluntary groups with the help of Brentwood Borough Council with donors dropping items off at the Town Hall.

    The Hutton Community Food Hub said it was helping 250 families and handing over 300 food parcels a week.

    Council leader Chris Hossack said: "The way the community has come together is extraordinary. These guys have established themselves, rallied volunteers and residents, complied with the rules that are in place to sort the donations and deliver them."

    The groups also include Christian charity Manna Meals, community groups Brentwood Covid-19 Mutual Aid, which has 2,100 members on Facebook, and Brentwood Residents Action Group (BRAG).

    Molly Miller, who runs BRAG with Jazz Cooper, said: "Our primary aim was to provide help to the over-60s self-isolating who were unable to shop."
