Cruden launches annual Christmas foodbank appeal to give back to local communities

Last year, Cruden collected an incredible £20,000 worth of food and cash donations

IN LIGHT of the season of giving and for the third consecutive year, Cruden Building Scotland, part of the Cruden Group, is launching its annual foodbank appeal in partnership with local UK food bank charity, The Trussell Trust (Scotland).

Last year, Cruden collected a total of £20,000 worth of food and cash donations through the kindness of staff, partners, suppliers and friends which, with the help of The Trussell Trust, were donated to eight local food banks across the central belt of Scotland to help those less fortunate.

This year, Cruden is asking once again for people to show their generosity during the festive season by donating vital household items to give back to local communities. Donations can include non-perishable items such as long-life milk and fruit juice, tinned food, pasta, breakfast cereals, rice, biscuits and more. People can also show their support by giving a cash donation of their choice if preferred.

Colin Kennedy, Construction Director of Cruden Building Scotland, said: “Last year, our foodbank appeal was a great success, and we were able to touch the lives of many across Scotland by giving them a helping hand during the winter season.

“This year, we want to make an even bigger difference to those in need and are asking our team to spread some festive kindness and help others by donating much-needed everyday items to those who need them most. Every donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated and will have a positive impact on the lives of others. We will once again be working alongside The Trussell Trust to ensure that our donations reach those who need them most.”

If you would like to donate to Cruden’s foodbank appeal 2022, please drop off any items to your nearest Cruden site or office. Alternatively, cash donations can be made at
