GHA staff dig deep to help food bank

GHA staff in the north west went the extra mile to make sure people in their community had enough to eat.

GHA staff made a collection for Drumchapel Food Bank

Staff in Drumchapel responded to a cry for help from the local food bank that they were running low on stock.

Housing and environmental staff from GHA’s office raided their own cupboards at home for items to donate.

They also contacted shops in the area – and a local branch of Farmfoods gave a card donation which the guys used to stock up on items from the store.

The GHA team then delivered a massive 13 crates to the food bank – including pasta, rice, cereal and tins of soup – as well as toiletries, nappies and pet food.

Joe Lambie, GHA’s housing manager for the area, said: “We know how hard it is for some people who are struggling to make ends meet.

“We were more than happy to help out.

“This was a great effort from our environmental team, housing staff, family and friends and local businesses.”

A spokesperson for Drumchapel Food Bank added: “We would like to extend a huge thank you to the team from GHA for the huge donation of food we received.

“We look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Drumchapel Food Bank is in Unit 9, 15 Ladyloan Place. It’s open Monday to Thursday from 9am till 4.30pm and on Fridays from 9am till 3.30pm, depending on their stock.
