Reeds Rains in Clevedon is hoping everyone can enjoy a chocolate treat this Christmas.
The estate agent in Clevedon's Triangle has donated a collection of selection boxes to the Foodbank and hopes its actions might encourage other businesses to do the same.
Charlotte Emsley, director of Reeds Rains Clevedon, said: "Christmas can be a financially difficult time for a lot of people, especially those who are dependent on the foodbank.
"While we understand essentials are what is most needed, we thought some festive treats will put a smile on a number of children's faces this Christmas.
"We hope our small gesture will also show them that people care."
