Doing its bit to tackle waste in the retail supply chain, Budgens retailer S&L Retail Limited, in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, has donated a giant pumpkin one of three on display in November at Budgens stores throughout the country to Wood Green Animal Shelters.

Weighing in at 235kg, the pumpkin will be used to feed the charity's field animals such as pigs, horses, goats and sheep.
