The Midlothian foodbank will be collecting donations at the Tesco store at Hardengreen this weekend.

Customers will be invited to donate food in store from Friday until Sunday.

Midlothian foodbank will then pass on the food to people that need it locally.

Janice Burns from the foodbank said: “Winter is the hardest time of year for people living in poverty, and this Christmas is looking especially tough as fuel prices continue to rise.

“We’re delighted that Tesco are working with us to help stop local people going hungry this Christmas and we hope that many people will donate a tin or two.”
