THE North Ayrshire Foodbank got a boost from the Skate Ayrshire event last week.

Skate Ayrshire is a prestigious skating event hosted by three local clubs; Auchenharvie IDFSC, Ayr FSC & Galleon FSC.

As part of this year’s event they were very proud to support local Foodbank, which recently issued an urgent appeal for new supplies.

A donation station was set up at Skate Ayrshire which saw more than 93kg to the charity.

Organiser Julie McCallum said:“The generosity from our skating community has been incredible, thank you to everyone who donated.”

It is hoped that further collections will be held in the future through Skate Ayrshire.
