A big thank you to all our volunteers and Edinburgh Helping Hands

29th December 2017

On Saturday 23rd December, the fans of Hibernian Football Club donated an amazing 11 tonnes of food to Edinburgh NE foodbank.

This large donation had to be organised, sorted and stored. Thank you to Bradley Welsh and his team for organising the collection and delivering it so efficiently to South Leith Parish Church halls. Thank you to all the volunteers from the church and community in Leith, who turned up on the 27th and 28th December to sort and store the food.

The generosity of the Hib’s fans is something really shouting out about, the time and effort given by our volunteers is something to be seen. The dedication of the food bank project and management team is really really appreciated. Thank you all for your hard work and be assured your efforts will make a huge difference to those in need within our community.

Rev Iain May

Chair, Edinburgh NE food bank
