Food Bank Boost From Staff At Beattie
Monday, 07 April 2014
Big-hearted staff at PR firm, Beattie Communications raided their kitchen cupboards in support of a local food bank.
The team from the Uddingston office collected a range of non-perishable items to donate to the Basic Food Bank, Lanarkshire.
The bank provides emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis and poverty in Lanarkshire and beyond.
More than 20 members of staff contributed to the charity drive, collecting an impressive 400 cans and other food stuffs. The food donated by the Beattie Communications team will be distributed to local people in need.
Joanne Spence, Head of Scotland for Beattie Communications, said: “Everyone in our PR and online marketing teams has rallied round for this worthy cause.
“In recent years we’ve all become increasingly aware of food banks due to the effects of rising food and fuel prices so we are delighted to be able to give our local outlet a bit of a boost.”
