ARNOLD Clark bosses are “extremely proud” to be supporting the Glasgow Times 2023 Bank on Us campaign.

We previously reported the Glasgow Times will be running the Bank on Us campaign for the fifth consecutive year, and we are encouraging our readers to get involved in a food drive.  

As part of the festive campaign, readers who are able to donate are being asked to fill the bags we supplied in our edition on Wednesday, November 15 with food items and hand them into one of our partner food banks.

Arnold Clark is one of the sponsors of this year’s campaign.

Eddie Hawthorne, Arnold Clark chief executive and group managing director, says he hopes the company’s donation towards the campaign can ease the stress of some families over the festive season.

He said: "We're extremely proud to be supporting Glasgow Times’ charity drive, Bank on Us.

"We know how difficult the holidays can be for families who are struggling.

"Charity drives like this can really help families and have a real positive impact on children during the Christmas period. 

"We hope our donation can help ease the stress of some families and help them enjoy their Christmas."

Glasgow Times:

This year, our Christmas campaign is more important than ever due to the cost-of-living crisis with thousands of families struggling to heat their homes and put food on the table.  

As well as the food drive, the Glasgow Times will be raising money for our Bank on Us toy drive via GoFundMe HERE

All proceeds will be used to purchase toys which will be distributed to charities across the city to be handed out to parents and put under the tree as we aim for every child in Glasgow to open a present on December 25. 

The Bank on Us 2023 campaign is proudly sponsored by Arnold Clark, Stagecoach, Allied Vechicles, Spar Scotland, Storage Vault and StepChange.
