Cunninghame Housing Association donates to North Ayrshire Foodbank
Cunninghame Housing Association donates to North Ayrshire Foodbank after a request for financial support.
An Ayrshire housing association has donated £10,000 to a local foodbank.
Cunninghame Housing Association (CHA) made the contribution to North Ayrshire Foodbank (NAF) after a request for financial support of £5,000 earlier this month.
Following a meeting by CHA’s management board, it was decided that £5,000 would be given to assist with administration costs and an additional £5,000 would go towards the purchase of food supplies.
Craig Crosthwaite, Co-ordinator for NAF, said: “CHA has been a long-term supporter of NAF through direct grants, staff fundraising and food drives. Their support has enabled the food bank to carry out its work, distributing food boxes, delivering our children’s anti-hunger work and, now, preparing precooked meals.
“The food bank is deeply appreciative of the friendship of management and staff as well as the resources allowing this critical work to be delivered.
"Thank you all for this generosity of spirit and for being there when we need the support. The food bank also wishes CHA continued success in its fundraising efforts and future of the group."
