Workers at an Oldmeldrum business have given a massive boost to a festive food appeal which will help to ensure Aberdeen food banks are well stocked this Christmas.

Staff at north-east energy industry manufacturer and service provider Flowline Specialists have donated over £300 worth of food and toiletries to the Original 106 Christmas appeal.

The appeal has been held in conjunction with Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE), with the aim of ensuring the region’s food banks are well stocked for the festive season.

Flowline Specialists encouraged its staff to get involved, either by purchasing items or donating money.

Items contributed to the appeal included non-perishable everyday household groceries, toiletries, a range of baby products and some food stuffs that could be put to use over the Christmas period.

Flowline Specialists’ donation is part of its 15-month long, 15 for 15 charity campaign which it is running to mark its 15th anniversary.

During the initiative, the firm and its staff are donating items or fundraising for a series of different good causes or community projects.

Jim Smith, Flowline Specialists CEO, said: “The Original 106 Christmas appeal is a fantastic initiative and the whole team is very proud to have supported it and help make a difference to the lives of a number of families this festive season.

“Hearing of the demand that local food banks experience is quite astounding, so I’d encourage everyone to support them in whatever way they can.”
