A HIGHLY successful event in support of the foodbank was organised by a Troon community group.

On December 16, eight members of Troon Ladies Circle and their families took part in the fifth food collection at Morrisons for South Ayrshire Foodbank.

They were overwhelmed by the generosity of the people in the community of Troon.

Children had saved their pocket money and came along on the day to purchase items from the Foodbank shopping list. Others completed the reverse advent calendar and people donated many tins, packets, boxes, toys and toiletries which has all been sent to the Foodbank for distribution.

In addition to the food items collected we raised £260 for the foodbank to use accordingly. A massive thanks to Morrison for their continued support in having us instore and in the car park with the Troon Round Table Santa Float.

A huge thanks from Ladies Circle members go to everyone who donated to our food drive. All have undoubtedly helped to make a difference this Christmas
