Provost donates £500 to foodbank for those in need

Provost Una Walker brought some Christmas cheer to East Dunbartonshire Foodbank when she made a Christmas delivery with a £500 donation from her charity.

East Dunbartonshire Foodbank – based at 19 Donaldson Street, in Kirkintilloch - helps to feed families in need from across the authority and its services are particularly in demand at this time of year.

Provost Walker said: “Christmas is a time for being with family and friends and appreciating just how lucky we are, but we often forget it can be a very difficult time for many people who are struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table.

“I always enjoy visiting the foodbank, particularly at this time of year when there is a great buzz about the place.

“They do such amazing work all year and I hope this donation of £500 will go some way to making Christmas 2015 one to remember for all the right reasons.”
