Many thanks to all who came along to donate on 19 August. There were 40 bags of groceries donated to Inverclyde Foodbank and another 20 bags to Starter Packs Inverclyde including lots of donations of bedding and crockery. £50 was also donated to each charity from cash donations and the proceeds of June’s lovely baking! The Fairtrade stall also did well, and there were many washing up liquid refills done. A whopping 4 kg of old jewellery, foreign notes and coins were also donated which will be sent off for sorting/recycling in aid of Traidcraft Exchange to support projects in East Africa.
