A SCOTTISH foodbank has been fed a free van with no ‘best by’ date to worry about!
Fleet Alliance has given the van for two years free to the Glasgow North East Foodbank for transporting food to the poor and needy in the local community.
The Glasgow NE Foodbank is a registered charity in its own right, operating under the umbrella of the Trussell Trust charity which runs 420 foodbanks across the UK, and in two years it has supplied food to more than 5,300 people with six centres from a central hub at Parkhead in Glasgow.
The Fleet Alliance foodbank van, a Renault Kangoo ML 1.9DCI eco2, will be used to ferry food supplies from the central hub to its satellite centres, as well as collecting food from local supermarkets and making other collections.
Fleet Alliance has long been a strong supporter of worthwhile charities and since 2008 the company’s fund-raising efforts have accumulated more than £230,000 for worthy causes.
