Neilsons Christmas foodbank appeal

Christmas is next month. What is a tremendously exciting time for many of us can often be a month of dread for those struggling to get by.

This year on the run up to Christmas, Neilsons Solicitors & Estate Agents will be organising a foodbank drive on behalf of Edinburgh North East Foodbank which will then latterly be divided across respective foodbanks across Edinburgh and Midlothian.

Edinburgh North East Foodbank are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

There will be drop off points at our Corstorphine, City Centre, South Queensferry and Bonnyrigg offices and items can be handed in at any time on the run up to Christmas:

-138 and 142 St John’s Road, Edinburgh, EH12 8AY
-2a Picardy Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3JT
-37 High Street, South Queensferry, EH30 9HN
-72 High Street, Bonnyrigg, EH19 2AE

Aidan Tuohy, Solicitor at our Picardy Place office who has helped to co-ordinate the appeal, said:

“Neilsons are delighted to support Edinburgh North East Foodbank this year and any donations will be distributed across vital foodbanks across Edinburgh and Midlothian.

We have attached some information of the specific items which would be of benefit and these vary from basic food stuffs, toiletries and also more festive items for the Christmas celebrations.

We would be massively grateful to our clients and business partners who would be willing to make any donation big or small to support us with this worthwhile cause.”
