West Coats kids show car­ing side

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Big hearted kids at West Coats Pri­mary showed their car­ing side when they used their an­nual har­vest cel­e­bra­tions to col­lect items for the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang food­bank.

Dozens of bags were filled with es­sen­tial food items to help fam­i­lies liv­ing in poverty.

Pri­mary seven pupils Ava Cochrane and Amy Camp­bell, rep­re­sent­ing the school, were on hand to help de­liver the food to Cam­bus­lang Bap­tist Church, where the food­bank has an out­let.

They were made to feel very wel­come by Rhona, the duty man­ager, who ex­plained the process for ac­cess­ing food and other sup­port that could be use­ful.

B o t h g i r l s a g reed that the visit was very in­for­ma­tive and it gave them an un­der­stand­ing of an es­tab­lished ser­vice within their com­mu­nity.
