Foodbank’s Christmas cheer
A Rutherglen and Cambuslang group have made a generous donation to the Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank.
The Rutherglen and Cambuslang branch of Woman for Independence paid a visit to the foodbank located in St Columbkille’s Church Hall to make a donation of two hampers.
Katy Loudon, who is a member of the group, said: “Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank were happy to receive a generous luxury hamper from the Women for Independence Rutherglen group. This is the first community action for the new group, which aims to give women a voice on important local issues. Their next meeting will be held in January, and women from Rutherglen and surrounding towns will be very welcome to attend.”
A spokesperson for the foodbank said: “A big thanks for this donation, it is most welcome.”
The Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank opened in October last year.
Earlier this year we reported that a second foodbank had to be opened in Whitlawburn Community Resource Centre. A third foodbank will be located at Cambuslang Baptist Church.
