St Finnbarr’s Church
There will be a Christmas Foodbank collection for the Highland Foodbank outside in St Finnbarr’s grounds.
Every day people in the Highlands are struggling to put food on the table. Even under normal circumstances people struggle as a result of a variety of causes from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. This year however COVID has made the situation much worse for many people.
The Highland Foodbank is part of the work of Blythswood Care and provides a minimum of three days emergency food and support to local adults and children in crisis.
Below is a list of items that they are currently running low on, including essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products, helping people in crisis to maintain dignity and feel human again.
- Tins of ham/corned beef
- Tins of potatoes
- Tins of mince/stew
- Small packets of washing powder/gel
- Small bottles of washing up liquid
- Male/female deodorant
- Shaving foam/razors
- Toothpaste/individually wrapped brushes
- Shower gel
They currently have an overabundance of
- SOUP AND
- ALL FORMS OF TINNED BEANS
… so these items are best avoided.
Given the time of year, they are very keen to receive special seasonal treats for all the family.
