Christina McKelvie MSP donates in festive fashion

Christmas has come early for the Hamilton District Foodbank, courtesy of members of the Scottish Parliament.

Throughout December, Christina McKelvie MSP has been encouraging fellow parliamentarians to get involved in her reverse advent calendar initiative, in aid of the Hamilton District Foodbank.

The initiative, which involves members donating items for the foodbank on every day of the advent calendar, garnered donations from across the Scottish Parliament.

Commenting on the donations, the Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse MSP commented:

“I thank my parliamentary colleagues from across the chamber for their kind donations to the foodbank.

“Whilst many people can get caught up in the great Christmas rush, including opening their advent calendars on a daily basis, there are far more people on a daily basis who need support just to eat.

“The volunteers at the foodbank are the best that Hamilton has to offer. They are incredibly selfless in their time and commitment all year round, not just at Christmas.

“If our donation, in any small way, brightens up someone’s Christmas day then it’s the very least we could do."
