From Stonehaven & District Round Table

STONEHAVEN & District Round Table have introduced a food bank disco truck collection round!

The group will be touring Stonehaven on a disco truck playing all your favourite hits as we pick up any unopened, non-perishable food and toiletry donations that you may be able to give.

We encourage you to have a boogie in your garden or front room and give us a wave from your window as we pass all dressed up in our disco clobber. Social distancing rules apply of course!

With many local fundraising events being cancelled the Round Table were keen to find new ways of helping the community. The events of the pandemic have put extra pressure on the finances of people in the local area and the food banks and community support groups play an essential role in ensuring families can have food on the table.

Donations can be left at the end of your path or drive (ideally bagged or boxed). All donations will be collected and given to the Haven Community Larder and the local food banks.

Already we have toured the Ury Estate, the Glenury Estate and Cowie and the response was phenomenal with a full van of donations at the end. It was fantastic to see everyone up dancing and waving to the tunes and we’d like to express our thanks to all who have donated so far.

Next collection on Monday

Tours are weather dependant, but the next round is expected to be on Monday 8th June starting at 6pm. We’ll commence at the Bernham end of Ferrochie Road making our way along the streets off Ferrochie Road, then the William Mackie Streets, then to the streets off Mearns Drive and finally to the streets off Farburn Drive.

We have to turn the music off at 8:30pm so hopefully we’ll make it the whole way in that time! Keep an eye on the Stonehaven & District Round Table Facebook group for the dates times when we’ll be passing your area. Alternatively, you can keep an ear out for us passing – you’ll not miss it!

Crowdfunding for local groups

Separately, the group have also set up a Crowdfunder page as an alternative way of raising money for local schools and groups to help them restart their activities when conditions allow. All donations gratefully received and 100% of the money goes to the causes: Click here
