Food donations are to help a charity continue to cater for those most in need seven days a week.

Hamilton Churches Drop-in Centre requested help from the Community Wish List for various food items and supplies.

McConechy’s Tyres granted the wish with £100 worth of supplies for the project.

Reverend Malcolm James Anderson said: “On behalf of the trustees of our charity Hamilton Churches Drop-in Centre, the generosity provided by McConechy’s Tyres will continue to help feed and nourish those struggling with the cost-of-living crisis.

“It was once said, ‘no-one ever became poor by giving’.

“Many will be enriched by the kindness of others.”

A spokesperson for McConechy’s Tyres said: “We are aware of our responsibilities and commitments to the local communities we serve. We embrace the opportunities we can provide and making donations such as this is so worthy.  

“The work Malcolm and all the volunteers do is both inspiring and remarkable.” 

The Community Wish List is supported by the council’s Community Engagement team.

Chair of the Finance and Corporate Resources Committee, Councillor Lesley McDonald, said: "This is another great example of the CWL and the unique and individual benefits it can bring to local communities and organisations.”

Local community groups can submit a wish via the council website, by email, or by calling 0303 123 1017.
