For the second year running Clydesdale Housing Association have donated Christmas-themed food, gifts and treats to Clydesdale food bank. In addition, this year they also made a £200 donation to support this good cause.
The donation, which was warmly received, will help families and single people living in the Clydesdale area which includes Carluke, Law, Forth, Lanark, Biggar, Rigside, Douglas, Lesmahagow, Kirkmuirhill, Coalburn, Abington and all the surrounding rural areas and will go some way to providing them with essentials over the forthcoming holiday period.
Liz Barthram from Clydesdale Foodbank added: “I want to thank Clydesdale Housing Association for their generosity which will help a large number of local people who were facing a food crisis to enjoy Christmas.”
Joe Gorman, CEO of CHA, said: “The Association’s staff are acutely aware of the difficulties confronting our tenants and families on low incomes, particularly at this time of year. We were delighted to help where we could by making these donations.”
Association chairperson, Pauline Sandford, said: “I want to thank our Management Committee and the Staff Team, for their generosity in supporting many households who need assistance this Christmas. It demonstrates our new Business Vision and commitment of trying to achieve ‘Quality homes and excellent services for all – for today and the future’
“Not only do we offer quality homes to our tenants, but we also understand that some local people need our assistance at this time of year to have a wonderful Christmas.”
