The Tesco store in Stornoway is holding an extra summer food collection to support the Trussell Trust and FareShare.

From tomorrow (Thursday, August 20) until close of business on Saturday, special donation points will be put up at every Tesco Superstore and Extra store, with customers being asked to donate essential items of long-life food.

Tesco will top up all customer donations with an additional 20 per cent donation in cash to the two charities.

The collection has been organised in response to the extra pressures placed on the food banks and community groups which FareShare and the Trussell Trust are supporting during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Katy Kitchingham, the Trussell Trust’s area manager for Stornoway, said: “Over the last few months, we’ve been truly humbled to see how much people in Stornoway are willing to give and the difference this can make when someone is in crisis.

“Every donation made during Tesco’s summer food collection will help food banks in our network provide the best possible emergency help.”
