Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford has encouraged locals to support foodbank Start Up Stirling in their campaign this Christmas.
Mr Crawford visited foodbank volunteers at the weekend during their drive for donations at Stirling’s Tesco store. He said:“For those who struggle to make ends meet throughout the year, the festive season can fill them with dread. Council referrals to the Stirling foodbank have doubled in the past couple of years. I am calling on those who can afford it to give to struggling families to visit the Start Up Stirling website and find out how they can help.”
The Start Up Stirling unit at 16B Whitehouse Road receives donations from Monday to Friday. There are also donation stations across Stirlingshire, listed at https://startupstirling. org.uk/news/2018/where-to-donate. Donation vouchers can also be purchased from Brea Scottish Restaurant, 5 Baker Street, Stirling, online at www.startupstirling.org.uk or at the charity’s unit.
