A COMMUNITY fridge project which aims to help those most in need in the Three Towns has been given a cash boost thanks to Cunninghame Housing Association.

Cunninghame Housing Association presented a cheque to the value of £2,000 to help support the community fridge on Thursday, April 22, which was recently set up by Councillor Jim Montgomerie and a group of volunteers from the Inspire Motivate Celebrate project at Springvale Street, Saltcoats.

The donation was awarded by the association’s voluntary board of management who commended the work of Cllr Jim Montgomerie and the volunteers in supporting their local community.

John Kelly, chairperson of Cunninghame Housing Association presented the cheque to Cllr Montgomerie, chairperson of Inspire, Motivate, Celebrate.

Cllr Montgomerie said: “Everyone from the project is hugely grateful for Cunninghame Housing Association’s kind donation.

“We all really appreciate this amount of money.

“It will all be spent on food to help those who use our fridge within our community.”

The community fridge was initially set up with the aim of helping those most in need during lockdown and to ensure nobody goes without food during these challenging times.

John Kelly added: “The board of management and its staff are keen to help those in need and support the local community. We hope that this donation will help make a difference to people who need it most.”

The community fridge is open and available 24 hours a day, seven days week.
