Local women’s fitness and weight loss centre Curves Inverurie once again ran its Annual Food Drive and collected an amazing 29 stones 7 pounds of non perishable food items.
During the month of March, Curves waived their service fee in exchange for a donation of food, and existing members were encouraged to donate food as well. All food collected was donated to the Inverurie Food Bank.
As was previously reported in the Herald, the Food Bank was officially opened on March 24, this year but has been running since 2012, and to date an amazing nine tonnes of food have been donated, not only through store collections but also from the generosity of schools, Churches, clubs and societies, and of course, individual donations.
Glenda Beaulieu, Curves Inverurie owner, said, “The Food Drive is one of our most popular initiatives and once again, thanks to the generosity of our members, and new members, it was a great success.
“We pride ourselves on being a close-knit community and the food drive is just one of many charity campaigns that we run annually to bring our members and their local community closer together.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming more women to Curves and supporting local and deserving cause at the same time.”
