Scotmid Co-operative has provided funding to more than 80 charities with a focus on helping those dealing with food poverty and homelessness.

The move comes as part of the retailer’s Winter Giving campaign with the aim to assist over the difficult winter months.

Shelter Scotland (Aberdeen and Dundee) received a £2,500 donation from Scotmid, with Regional Fundraiser Claire Taylor noting: “We are incredibly grateful to organisations like Scotmid who support community giving to good causes like ours.

“Our work supports people, families and children across Scotland to ensure every single person, regardless of age and situation have the support they require both in the immediate and long-term.”

Scotmid North Communities Manager Lynne Ogg added: “Winter can be tough for many people, especially for those who rely on foodbanks or who may be struggling with homelessness.

“It is important for us to support the causes that directly help people in these difficult circumstances across our local communities. We hope the funding has helped to make winter a little easier for people across Scotland.”
