Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) in the Western Isles has signalled its continuing commitment to the community by expanding the network of drop-off points for food bank donations.

Food to be donated to Eilean Siar Foodbank can now be popped into collecting boxes outside the doors of community fire stations throughout Lewis and Harris.

There are boxes by the door at Stornoway, Tarbert, Great Bernera, Ness, Shawbost, Valtos and South Lochs fire stations.

The designated drop-off points are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are clearly marked with rain-proof lidded boxes near station doors.

A spokesperson for SFRS said: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service are proud to support the Eilean Siar Foodbank Project. The need for this support remains high and your generosity goes a long way.”
