Christmas foodbank donations drop off at Rona Mackay MSP’s office

RONA Mackay is appealing for donations of Christmas Gifts to East Dunbartonshire Foodbank.

The Strathkelvin and Bearsden MSP says the organisation is in need of new, unwrapped gift donations for adults and children, who may otherwise not receive gifts this Christmas.

She said: “It is an absolute tragedy so many people rely on foodbanks throughout the year, but especially through the cold winter months. Many of us take our Christmas dinners for granted, so I am encouraging constituents give what they can to the people who need it. I am running a collection in my office at 78 Townhead, Kirkintilloch, for people to drop off any Christmas donations.”

Ideal gifts include: games, puzzles, books, gift vouchers, DVDs, clothes, toiletries and make up sets, and chocolates or sweets.

Donations of Christmas food are also requested. Items needed include: tinned ham, Christmas pudding, Christmas cake, luxury biscuits, selection boxes, boxes of chocolates, snacks and nibbles, Christmas crackers and mince pies.

Donations should be dropped off at Rona’s constituency office at 78 Townhead, Kirkintilloch, G66 8EF, by December 20.


Rona Mackay was elected in May 2016 with a 8,100 majority in Strathkelvin and Bearsden.

Prior to this, she was a journalist in national newspapers for more than 20 years, before becoming Parliamentary Assistant to Clydebank and Milngavie MSP Gil Paterson, with whom she worked for nine years before becoming elected.
