A North Glasgow nursery's food bank has received a £1,000 donation of supermarket vouchers to continue supporting families and maintain its operations.

The donation of supermarket vouchers came from the Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust to Balmore Kindergarten.

The nursery provides care and early childhood education to children from several areas including Possilpark, Parkhouse, Milton, and Lambhill.

The nursery's food bank, started by nurse Bekki Florence, saw a need to help the children who come from deprived backgrounds and many of whom arrive hungry.

Glasgow Times: Nursery foodbank with dwindling supplies

Struggling to keep up with the high demand and rising costs of living, the food bank's resources dwindled.

Carrie Lloyd, manager of Balmore Kindergarten, said: "This contribution from the Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust is a lifeline for our foodbank and the families it serves.

"Many of our children come from backgrounds where hunger is an everyday reality.

"Thanks to this donation, we can continue to provide essential support to those in need, ensuring that no child in our care goes hungry."

Gerry Facenna, owner and founder of Allied Vehicles, said: "Our donation to Balmore Kindergarten's foodbank reflects our commitment to making a positive impact to the lives of those in our local communities, and I’m proud that the Trust supports children and families so close to home."
