Generous shoppers in Montrose and Forfar donated more than 3,900 kg of food to help feed local people facing crisis.

Angus Foodbank, with the help of a small army of volunteers, asked shoppers at Tesco stores in both towns to donate items of food to help those in need from Thursday (July 3) to Saturday (July 5). A total of 3,942 kg was collected - enough to feed 200 families.

Angus Foodbank manager, Alf Collington, said: “Angus Foodbank wants to say a big thank you to all those who gave their food or time. It is hard to describe the difference giving a food parcel makes to parents whose children would otherwise go to bed hungry and it is people like you who make this possible. Thank you.

“More than 90 per cent of the food that is given out by the foodbank is donated by the public, which makes collections like this so important. The foodbank wouldn’t be able to run without public generosity.”
