With Christmas just around the corner our Reverse Advent food bank appeal has now come to an end. We have been overwhelmed by the response and the amount of food that has been donated over the past three weeks or so has been incredible.

Last week alone THREE van loads of items were collected from the Arena for distribution to those who need it.

The contribution from everyone is very much appreciated at this difficult time.

As well as donations from our loyal supporters we also had support from various businesses who backed the scheme and played a major part in its success. A massive thank you must go to; Hayden Chilled, Galoglass Group, James Hallam, La Dolce Vita, The Bank, Stevie Wight Electrical, Lochar Thistle, The Rotary Club and Qubiti as well as our SLO committee and Queens staff, Kevin and Stacey.

Chairman, Billy Hewitson said “On behalf of the Club we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated. It is always great to see our community pull together, especially at this time of year. The past twelve months have been very challenging across the world and we are proud of the way the people of Dumfries and Galloway have backed our Reverse Advent, their generosity will go a long way to easing the stress of many families, so from the bottom of our hearts – thank you very much”.
