Community night to aid food banks


Local people are teaming up to organise another event to help food banks in Cumbernauld and Kilsyth.

The event, titled Feed A Family For Christmas, will take place at the Mallard pub.

One of the organisers, Liam Stevenson, said: “Our goal is to raise £2,000, enough to keep both food banks in bread and milk for six months.”

While Tommy Sheridan is a guest speaker, Liam insists the evening will be non-political.

“This is a non political event and we want everyone to come and help the poorest families in our local community,” he said.

The event is on November 22 at the Mallard pub in Greenfaulds, starting at around 7pm.

There will be music from Martin Hutcheson, Billy Hall, Tom Kills and more, and the pub is laying on a buffet.

There will also be a variety of games, raffle prizes and auction items including a signed Scotland football shirt.

Tickets, £4, can be purchased at the Mallard or direct from Liam Stevenson on 07834686846. Donations of raffle or auction prizes welcome. On this occasion people are asked to donate cash for the food banks to spend on fresh produce, instead of bringing bags of food.
