Car Hire Glasgow Airport staff are praising those who have donated to the foodbank in the centre of Glasgow.
Around 2,000 bags of food have been donated to a foodbank in central Glasgow which started in the midst of a gathering of peace campaigners.
Andrew Carnegie was in George Square delivering a speech on unity when members of the public began dropping off bags of groceries when they heard about his foodbank. Mr Carnegie said the food bags filled eight vans and 11 cars.
The 45-year-old, who runs the Glasgow’s Needy project with his son Darren, 25, has been collecting and sharing food across the city for 12 years. He said “I would say we have about 2,000 bags here and we left George Square with eight vans and 11 cars filled with food. It’s all quality food from top supermarkets. Tomorrow, after I wake up and walk my dog, I will start taking action and separating the food. If necessary, I will provide food to other foodbanks.”
