Kirkcaldy's Yes2 Hub donates to town's foodbank
Roy Mackie, chairman of the group said: “We have donated the money to Kirkcaldy Foodbank on behalf of everyone who is connected to the hub.
“With the revelation that more people are slipping into poverty due to the ongoing pandemic, we wanted to help even if it was only a gesture.
“All of the people who are involved with the Hub are disgusted with the levels of poverty that some people are suffering and what compounds these feelings is the fact that even though the country is in debt there is still enough money to make sure that people do not go hungry."
Roy adds that the foodbank was a natural choice for the Hub to donate to.
He added: “Food is a basic need, so we were keen to donate to the foodbank in Kirkcaldy and we hope that it will help to make people happy.
"I would also like to add that the Yes2 Hub will be open very soon.
"Because we are situated between the Town House and the Job Centre we get a lot of people coming in for advice and help, even if it is only for a cup of tea and a chat - we want people to know that we are here to help them if we can.”
