Approaching Christmas Campbeltown Grammar School pupils heard that Kintyre Foodbank’s reserves were perilously low.

Each tutor group had a tray for collections which would mirror Argyll and Bute Council’s 12 days of Christmas campaign to ensure foodbanks maintain supplies.

Just before the end of the autumn term, Maryanne Stewart of Kintyre Foodbank visited the school to meet the kind hearted pupils and collect the donated food.

Mrs Stewart said: ‘We really are most grateful to all of you. You probably have no idea how grateful the people are who receive food from Kintyre Foodbank.’

At the collection, from front left, were: Susan Shaw, Hannah Oman, Iona McKinlay, Imogen Houston, Maryanne Stewart, Holly Morkel, Amy Paterson and from back left: Darren Brown, Cameron Reid, head teacher David Fyfe and Louise Dott. 25_c52cgsfoodbank01
