Midlothian foodbank is well in credit

Generous shoppers in Midlothian added to their food bill recently when they visited the Tesco supermarket at Hardengreen.

They donated 2.8 tonnes of food to the Midlothian foodbank during a two-day initiative that linked to a collecting drive by The Trussell Trust and Fareshare.

Midlothian foodbank organisers have thanked shoppers for their contributions and are encouraging people to support a further collection at the Asda store in Straiton on August 3.
