MP backs Elgin food bank push

AN ELGIN supermarket is participating in a large-scale drive for food today (Saturday).

Moray MP Angus Robertson is also helping with the food drive at Elgin’s Tesco store. The donations will then be handed to those who need them on the run-up to Christmas.

"Christmas should be a celebration, but for too many families struggling through the worst recession in living memory, this Christmas may present a challenge to put food on the table," said Mr Robertson.

"I know that many families are facing difficult choices but it can be at these times when a thought spared for others can make the biggest possible difference.

Tesco, with support from Trussell Trust and FaresShare, will operate similar drives for local food banks throughout many of its stores nationwide.
