Stirling Aid has hit a huge milestone of a distribution of the equivalent of 522,000 meals!!
Thats right! Travelling from Stirling, Cumbernauld to Newton Mearns picking up excess supermarkets and dropped it off to needy foodbanks and high rise flats around Glasgow!
We must thank the volunteers that have helped last month.
Connie, Saadya , Nadeem, Lucas and Sulayman. The boys have been helping at the Gorbals foodbank helping to serve almost 220 families for the Duke of Edinburgh – working hard for a Well deserved award.
We must thank volunteers who have helped through out the year. These include Ayesha and Zeeshan,
Rehan , Alister and Nadeem. Stirlingshire pickups and food packs have been done by Azra, Tariq, Awais,Sabah and Ayesha helping through out the year! Cumbernauld pickups have been amazing with Sami he continued to help support this effort.
Special mentions the Staff at Tesco’s Cumbernauld who have helped us achieve these fantastic target. Gillian ,Lynzie, Patricia, Mary Anne ,Chloe, Christine’s! All three, Keiran, Freddy, Sean, Donna and Debbie, Three managers all called Peter!They have always topped us off with extra stuff that could easily have been binned. Please forgive me us if we miss any names. The team have organised Runs and Charity events to buy even more food for the charity to help us.
