The latest news from the Stirling branch of Food Train.
We were delighted to have been chosen by Stirling High School to receive funds raised from their sponsored Halloween 'Horrible Walk'.
We were very lucky to have Alasdair Tollemache Councillor for Dunblane and Bridge of Allan, donate a day to us to help with deliveries in Bridge of Allan. He got to see how our service works and how important our service is in preventing malnutrition. Alasdair said he was struck by how many people did not see any other visitors day to day, which highlights how important our cheery and warm volunteers are to our customers on their twice weekly visits. Our volunteers go above any beyond just delivering food and are always available for chat in between their deliveries. Thanks very much to Alasdair and all the support he has shown for our service.
It has been a very busy month in Stirling creating new partnerships and celebrating exisiting ones. Our volunteer students from St. Modans were nominated for an award and we are very proud to have started a new partnership with another very good cause 'Let's make it better, Sunlite Cafe' also based in Stirling.
Bruce Crawford, MSP for Stirling, spent some time yesterday volunteering with his local Food Train to deliver essential grocery shopping to older poeple in his constituency.
Several of our volunters received their 5 year long service award so we put up the bunting and ate lots of cake!
