Kirkcaldy Foodbank has been given a cash boost thanks to staff at the Nationwide Kirkcaldy branch.

Lyn Elder, branch manager, recently secured a grant of £2500 for Kirkcaldy Foodbank through their colleague funding programme.

The scheme allows all employees to apply for funding for a local charity they have an existing relationship with.

Each quarter the Society sets aside funds for this from its pledge to return one per cent of its pre-tax profits to good causes each year.

Joyce Leggate from Kirkcaldy Foodbank said: “We really appreciate all donations of food and cash. This grant will help us greatly.”
