Rebecca Woolven, joint manager of the Havens Food Cooperative, said: "We are thrilled to have Jeff Innocent headlining our charity fundraising show. His solo show has sold out across the UK! What an amazing opportunity to see Jeff performing outside his usual larger venues."

Working under the umbrella of Havens Community Hub CIC, the Cooperative prioritises people with the highest need and ensure any surplus is not wasted.

According to the Cooperative: “We use the food we rescue to assist both those who are in a position of food insecurity and those who want to help the environment by saving food from being sent to landfill. Any food we receive that is beyond its useful edible life is composted in our ‘Hot Bins’ and used by local gardeners to grow more produce to share.

“We are currently working with stores including Sainsbury's, Tesco, Co-op, Waitrose and Asda; along with organisations such as FareShare and Co-op Food Share. Together we are currently saving over 3 tonnes (close to 500 stone) of perishable food from being sent to landfill each month and helping over 60 households a day.”
