M&D’s visitors donate cash and bags of food to foodbank over festive period

M&D’s visitors to Scotland’s Theme Park, staff and suppliers have donated £1,800 as well as bags of food items to The Wee Mobile Foodbank, a non-profit organisation that supports people in Lanarkshire.

The Wee Mobile Foodbank is ran by Colin Dickson and his long-time friend John Malcolm, alongside volunteers who provide one-off emergency support to people in need across Lanarkshire who don’t usually need to use mainstream foodbanks.

Matthew Taylor, from M&D’s, said: “The team at the Wee Mobile Foodbank do a great job all year round but especially at Christmas when they have to juggle helping people alongside their day jobs as well as be with their own families.
