A Bit of Christmas Cheer

from Stonehaven Rotary Club –

The Rotary Club of Stonehaven agreed to support an initiative to provide a Christmas gift to recipients of both the Transform (Catalyst Vineyard) and Far & Wide foodbanks, serving the local area.

Members were invited to donate some of the money they would have spent on lunch at the weekly club meeting which cannot take place becsue of Covid restrictions. Thanks to members’ generosity, we have raised £1,550 for this cause. This has allowed us to provide each of 59 households with a gift of a food voucher to the average value of around £25, depending on the size of the household.

These gifts will be delivered during the week of 21 December in addition to the existing food parcels. Each gift will be delivered along with a Christmas card from the Rotary Club of Stonehaven.

In addition to the Christmas gifts, we will also make a donation of £130 to the Transform food bank which we directly support through supply of drivers on a weekly basis for delivery of food parcels.
