On Saturday [5th Dec] I gave some of my time to the local foodbank collection point in Greenock, as part of the local Christmas Appeal. I donned a lovely blue tabard and volunteered alongside the 85th Scout Group.
With over 11,000 people in need this Christmas the foodbank is needing help to make sure Christmas is special for everyone who uses their service.
My office is will be accepting donations until this Friday [11th Dec], you can drop off donations at 20 Crawfurd Street, any time between 9am and 5pm this week.
During the festive break it is important to think about our neighbours, especially those that are in need. I would urge everyone to think about what they can do over the festive period to ensure this holiday period is special for everyone.
