Shoppers at Tesco stores are being encouraged to help spread some festive joy by supporting Renfrewshire Foodbank.

A team of volunteers will be at the retail chain’s branches in Linwood, Paisley and Renfrew later this month to collect items such as fruit juice, tinned fish and sugar.

Elizabeth Alexander, manager of Renfrewshire Foodbank, said: “Shoppers are usually extremely generous and Tesco top up the food donations with a monetary one.”

The foodbank volunteers will be based at all three Tesco stores on Thursday, November 29, Friday, November 30, and Saturday, December 1.
