The foodbank has been helping people in crisis in Larkhall, Ashgill, Netherburn, Stonehouse, Strathaven, Blackwood, Lesmahagow and Coalburn since October 2013 and we are very grateful for all the support we have received from the local community.
At the beginning of July, the foodbank participated in the Tesco national food collection at Tesco in Lesmahagow. Once again we were overwhelmed by the sheer volume of donations made by the shoppers at the store and we want to give them a huge “thank you” for their amazing generosity. We also want to thank the staff in Tesco and our volunteers for all their help over the three day collection.
The people who receive the food we collect are always very appreciative of the help they are given and we extend their thanks to all those in the local community who continue to support the foodbank.
