It was a cold Monday morning, but the coolest place to be yesterday was outside Glasgow Central Station.

Working away like Christmas elves, our social media girls donned their Glasgow Times jackets and braved the streets outside iconic Glasgow Central Station.

Between 7 and 10AM, The Glasgow Times gave away one thousand rolls and copies of The Glasgow Times to beat the Monday morning blues and get Glasgow rolling with the Times.

Greeting Glasgow commuters with a smile, the Glasgow Times girls gave around a whopping 330 rolls per hour alongside their own copy of The Glasgow Times, Glasgow's only local newspaper.

Natalie Young, 21 from Townhead who helped to distribute the rolls and copies of The Glasgow Times, said yesterday:

"I had so much fun handing out the rolls today.

"Not only did the rolls brighten people's Monday morning but everyone’s reactions made mine.

"My favourite comment of the day was ‘is this a mirage, am I seeing okay? A free roll and sausage on a Monday? Yes please', alongside hundreds of ‘aye, nae bor.’

"All the comments on social media were just as brilliant, including a woman explaining that she had had a pretty terrible weekend and that this surprise on her way to work made all the difference."

From ticket conductors to traffic inspectors, office workers and students, bus and taxi drivers, The Glasgow Times sorted everyone's Monday morning the right way. We made sure that every homeless person on the streets around Glasgow Central Station had a roll or two and a copy of the paper.

Christine Campbell, 42 from Dennistoun, was pleasantly surprised when she picked up her free potato scone roll - and not only because there was a vegetarian option available.

"This is very kind of you" she said. "It's just nice to have someone outside the station doing something nice.

"I like the name as well. I saw it on Facebook last week but it's good to see the real thing.

"It's a good name to have about the city, I think."

In keeping with our Bank On Us Campaign, where we are encouraging people in Glasgow to fill a Glasgow Times bag to take to their local foodbank, our Roll With The Times had us out on the street getting the people of Glasgow fed and up to date with the latest goings-on in their city.

Bank.On.Us is our festive foodbank appeal which aims to help ensure the city's foodbanks are well stocked through December, when families are likely to experience increased financial pressures due to rising heating bills.

Up to 20 schools across the city have banked the campaign, with St. Paul's High School in Pollok requesting 600 bags.

Our own office has filled over 100 bags.

Callum Baird, editor of the Evening Times, said:

"Our paper has always had a history of sticking up for and championing those in greatest need in Glasgow – and our new drive continues this tradition.”
