HELENSBURGH & LOMOND FOODBANK
30/10/2014

From Monday, 3rd November 2014, a Food Bank will be operating in the Red Cross Hall, 116 East Princes Street, Helensburgh (behind the Tesco Express Petrol Garage on West Clyde Street). This will take place every Monday and Friday from 10.00am until 12 noon. 

Anyone who is in need is welcome to visit the food bank – e.g. those struggling due to DWP Sanctions/Welfare Reform, relationship breakdowns, crisis, families who can’t make ends meet. No paperwork referral is required in order to attend. Client’s information will be asked/stored on the day e.g. name, postcode, reason for support required (e.g. to avoid getting debt that week/DWP Sanction) and if the person has accessed the food bank before. 
This is seen as crisis assistance and support which will be in place for anyone who needs it. The food bank is not there for anyone’s “weekly top-up” because they rely purely on donations. There is no limit to the amount of times access will be supported but the staff are the custodians for all and can only help those who need temporary support.

Volunteers are very welcome to come along and assist with the operation of the food bank. The food bank make up 8 week rotas, consisting of 5 people and 1 team leader/committee member at each morning session and a number of people for 1 evening session to make up the shopping bags for the consequent food bank sessions.

The volunteers & staff recognise how difficult it will be for individuals to go to a food bank and they will make individuals feel welcome. Carr Gomm will also be there in a supporting role assisting all non-Dunbritton tenants and the food bank staff will contact Anna Murray, Crisis Intervention/Tenancy Officer for Argyll Networks, to support any Dunbritton tenants. 

Anyone wishing to make a donation to the food bank can do so at the Red Cross Hall, Helensburgh, The Garth Inn, Clyde Street, Helensburgh, The Co-Operative Supermarket in Helensburgh and at our offices at 1st Floor, 32 High Street, Dumbarton.


Macmillan Coffee Afternoon
16/10/2014

We recently hosted a Coffee Afternoon in aid of one of our charities of the year, Macmillan Cancer Support. Staff took a short break from the office and made tea and coffee by the gallon for locals who popped in for a seat and a chat and enjoyed some delicious home baking, freshly made by dedicated staff and their family and friends. Stalls were also set up to sell some of the baking and a raffle and tombola took place which went down a treat!

We were delighted to raise over £540 for Macmillan Cancer Support which took place in St Augustine’s Church Hall, Dumbarton on Wednesday 24th September. This money will go towards supporting those affected by cancer and their families.

Sephton MacQuire, Convenor of Dunbritton Housing Association’s Management Committee, thanked staff for their participation and hard work in managing to raise so much money in just a few hours, and for their continued dedication in supporting this fantastic charity.

We would like to thank all those who attended the Coffee Afternoon and helped make it the success it was. A huge thanks also goes to the local businesses that donated raffle and tombola prizes, including the Rosslea Hall Hotel, Rhu; Mei Beauty, Alexandria; The Stonefield Carvery, Dumbarton and The Village Rest Restaurant, Luss.
