Vol­un­teers and staff from Air­drie food­bank had two suc­cess­ful days col­lect­ing do­na­tions at the town’s branch of Tesco.

Gen­er­ous shop­pers do­nated a stag­ger­ing 850 kilo­grams of much-needed food items, as well as giv­ing £350 in cash do­na­tions to the lo­cal good cause.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the food­bank were joined by Air­drie & Shotts politi­cians Neil Gray MP and Alex Neil MSP dur­ing the course of the week­end col­lec­tion.

Air­drie food­bank man­ager David Find­lay said: “Once again we’re de­lighted that Tesco have given us the op­por­tu­nity to col­lect both food items and cash – our staff are al­ready sort­ing out the do­na­tions into emer­gency parcels.

“The Tesco neigh­bour­hood food col­lec­tion is a vi­tal part of our work, and with­out the help of the com­mu­nity, we wouldn’t be able to help fam­i­lies who are in need.

“De­mand for our ser­vices is sadly still high and all do­na­tions ap­pre­ci­ated.”
