Help feed people in need this Christmas
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.”
