The food bank project of Soroptimist International Costa del Sol will continue over the summer.

Since April kind-hearted members of the women's organisation have been collecting donations and buying food for the Mijas council food bank, run by the Red Cross.

Now members have decided to extend the scheme over the summer. "Although businesses can slowly start up, we are a long way from having a normal high season, with all the financial consequences for those who depend on tourists," said the club.

As well as dry, bulk goods, fresh produce has also been sourced.
