Property solicitor gives local food bank a boost

Added on 20 December 2015

Thorntons property solicitor Lisa Mannion has helped to give a food bank a much-needed boost over the festive period.

Lisa organised a collection for Dundee Food Bank, providing 20 boxes of food for those in need across the area.

The food was collected by Lisa from her colleagues in Thorntons in Dundee over a 6 week period.

Lisa, along with property manager Pat Rourke, made the delivery to the food bank run by the Trussell Trust on Wednesday 16 December.

Lisa commented: “For the majority of people, Christmas is a happy time for relaxing with friends and family.

“But for those struggling financially, it places an extra strain on budgets and leaves many wondering how they are going to feed themselves or their families.

“That is why I believe it is important that those in need are not forgotten at Christmas. A small donation to a food bank might not seem like a massive gesture, but every contribution helps to take the strain off those struggling with their finances.”

Ken Linton, of the Trussell Trust, said: “We are grateful for the generosity shown by those who donated to this collection.

“Stretched budgets at this time of the year mean that there is an increase in demand for help, so any donations are greatly appreciated.”
