    Story

    Bridging the Gap

    Highland Perthshire Foodbank

    Highland Perthshire is regarded by many as one of the most beautiful areas in Scotland and my family is fortunate to call it home. It is also regarded by many people as one of the most affluent regions but sadly this is not the case for everyone. Jobs are mainly in the tourist industry and therefore liable to be seasonal, leading to some families having to eke out their income with benefits and access to the food bank. The Atholl Centre in Pitlochry, a long established charity that provides support to all sections of the community, manages the area food bank in association with the Trussel Trust and Perth and Kinross Council. They depend on donations to give support to families in need of help so I am asking you to please support them by sponsoring my walk across the new Queensferry Crossing on Saturday 2nd September. All the money raised will be used to stock the food bank. It's as simple as that. I was retired on health grounds in 2015 so walking 1.7 miles will be a challenge for me personally, but that pales into insignificance in the face of parents trying to feed their children when they have no money to buy food. Please help by giving what you can, every penny counts. Thank you. Eve Bell

      Hi everyone - it's now almost a week since we walked over the Queensferry Crossing and I am delighted to tell everyone who supported my fundraising efforts that the original target has been exceed and I now have £220 donated her, and another £40 donated to me by other means bringing the total, so far, to £260! The October holidays, with Christmas not that far behind, will soon be upon us bringing additional pressure on families relying on food bank support so I am hoping that some of you will bridge that gap too of £40 to reach £300. Thank you!

      What an amazing day I've had with my ladies, Sherilyn, Annie and Niamh. From start to finish the event had a party atmosphere with everyone enjoying the experience. The organisers deserve huge thanks as there were no hitches and every one of the marshalls was friendly and enthusiastic. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me - we've exceeded the original target as some people gave me cash and others used a different funding method..Thank you so much, your generosity made today even more special and it is hugely appreciated♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
