ARDROSSAN Coastguard’s first ever Festive Food Bank Open Day was a huge success.

The event on December 23 was in support of North Ayrshire Foodbank and saw members of the community donate a truckload of food.

Members of the public met the coastguard team and enjoyed a free mince pie and hot drink at the Coastguard Station in Montgomerie Street.

In return, the visitors to the open day were only asked for one thing – to bring along a donation for the foodbank.
