BBs with an ap­petite for work help give food banks a boost

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Dun­blane Boys Brigade gath­ered 1.38 tons of do­na­tions for Start Up Stir­ling Food Bank.

Fifty BB boys were in­volved in un­pack­ing, sort­ing, la­belling, load­ing and trans­porta­tion of the goods to the Start Up de­pot.

Do­na­tions came from across the com­mu­nity as well as churches car­ry­ing out a Re­verse Ad­vent Cal­en­dar.

Dun­blane Boys Brigade will hold monthly col­lec­tions at its meet­ings through­out this year.

Dun­blane Boys Brigade of­fi­cer Fraser Boyd said: “Thanks to ev­ery­one who do­nated goods or their time on the day and to the local pri­mary schools, churches and busi­nesses for help­ing spread the word.”
