Macdonald welcomes local support for Barnardos
North East Labour MSP Lewis Macdonald today welcomed the support local people have shown for the work of Barnardos in Aberdeen, after carrying out a foodbank collection in his office over the last two weeks.
Lewis said :
“It is very easy at this time of year to focus on our own families, and our own festive celebrations.
“But I have been delighted by the support shown by local people for our foodbank collection, and I hope that our contribution will make a small difference to some of the local families who are finding it especially tough to make ends meet at Christmas.
“In an ideal world there would be no need for foodbanks, but the fact is that even in Aberdeen there are families who are struggling to put food on the table.
“The work done by Barnardos and other foodbanks throughout the region is invaluable, and Aberdonians are clearly happy to support that work.
