The Gate Foodbank at The Gate Charity, Ludgate, Alloa

As you may know, The Gate is a local Charity, set up in 2011, by Alloa Ludgate Church (Church of Scotland) to prevent or relieve poverty and improve the conditions of life of people who are marginalised, facing exclusion, vulnerable or homeless in the Clackmannanshire area.

One of their projects was to create a foodbank and many organisations and individuals have been contributing to this over the years, including Dollar, Glendevon and Muckhart Churches.

Prior to lockdown due to Covid-19, donations were handed in to Muckhart Church. However, whilst the Church remains closed, anyone wishing to make a donation can hand these in to Danny and Greer Conroy at 6 Cairns Place, MuckhartTel. 781330.

These donations will be delivered, every Thursday morning, to The Gate.

Items required are pasta, breakfast cereal, tinned – fruit, vegetables, soup, meat and fish, packets of dried foodstuffs, etc. and personal hygiene/toiletries.

Thank you.
