TR Scotland concludes 2022 community support with local Christmas food bank donation



The TR team in Scotland conclude 2022 with a community donation to a local food bank. The team will be donating £100 worth of food to EK Community Food Bank, across the next three months, during a period where families enduring hardship may struggle the most.

Having completed many successful food drives prior, the team know how much this means to so many families, allowing them to have a better quality of life especially in the winter months is so important.

The East Mains Baptist Church, part of the East Kilbride churches, works together for the food bank. They are able to provide a short-term care initiative to those families facing difficulties and who may not have enough to buy the necessities they need.


" It’s a sad fact that in our local area, many families and individuals are unable to provide for themselves and their loved ones, therefore they rely on the local food banks to ensure they have enough to eat.

Christmas is especially challenging for many families, the drop-in sessions are held every Monday from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm, where people can enjoy a hot drink and a roll. "

Stuart Harkness, Operations Manager at TR Scotland 

" Our volunteers would love to sit and chat with you. We give information about Christians Against Poverty, Alpha and anonymous groups such as: AA, GA and CA. Each person is given a bag of food weekly and toiletries once a month if required. "
