Supporting in our Community

Drummond Laurie Chartered Accountants We were delighted to be able to support Falkirk Foodbank with donations of food and our time as volunteers, but where we have really been able to add value is in assisting them with their accounts and some marketing support. foodbank_logo_Falkirk-logo Falkirk Foodbank is the 2nd largest in Scotland, run by an army of volunteers, and aims to provide nutritionally balanced food for 3-4 days to those in need. Families or individuals access the service through referrals from approved agencies such as Social Work, Benefits Agency, Citizen Advice Bureau as well as other charities and churches. The main reason for referrals is benefit delay followed by benefit changes, homeless and low income. This year they have managed to deliver food to over 6000 people and because of the very generous food donations they have been able to increase the size of the food parcels to 6 days. Working with local manufacturers like Malcolm Allan and Oliphants Bakery they are now also able to supply fresh produce as well. Currently they supply approximately 5.6 tonne every month!
