Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Competition - Ian Bunt­ing

A call has gone out for vol­un­teers in Mon­k­lands to help with the na­tion­wide Tesco Food Col­lec­tion for peo­ple in need this Christ­mas.

Lead­ing food char­i­ties FareShare and The Trus­sell Trust are look­ing for mem­bers of the pub­lic to help at do­na­tion points at Tesco stores from Thurs­day, Novem­ber 29, to Satur­day, De­cem­ber 1.

The an­nual col­lec­tion will see Tesco cus­tomers en­cour­aged to do­nate longlife food to help food­banks and com­mu­nity groups pro­vide some fes­tive cheer.

The su­per­mar­ket giants will top up cus­tomer dona­tions by 20 per cent to fur­ther sup­port the two char­i­ties.

Emma Re­vie, c h i e f ex­ec­u­tive of The Trus­sell Trust, said: “Food­banks across the coun­try will be do­ing all they can to pro­vide emer­gency sup­port so peo­ple don’t go hun­gry this Christ­mas, but to make sure ev­ery­one re­ferred re­ceives vi­tal help our net­work needs your sup­port.”
