Foodbank Collection – Tu 4th April – Change of Time

David Shaw will be down before the start of the TT rather than at the end.

Anyone who is donating, please bring your donations into the Boathouse with you at 6.30 pm.  He doesn’t have a lot of time to spare, so if you could be at the Boathouse for as close to 6.30 as possible, this will help get the donations in, and the TT kicked off at the usual time.

Any non-perishable foods and toiletries are welcome, but here is a reminder of the foods that are in high demand:

Tinned meat, small jars of coffee, tinned fruit, savoury rice, super noodles and UHT Long Life milk (whole and semi skimmed).

Football Collection – Tue 4th Apr

We will once again be taking donations for the Lanarkshire Foodbank at Tuesday’s Time Trial. Any non perishable goods and toiletries are greatly accepted, however they are in particular need once again of the following items:

Tinned meat, small jars of coffee, tinned fruit, savoury rice, super noodles and UHT Long Life milk (whole and semi skimmed)

David Shaw, Manager of the Foodbank has accepted our invitation to come down to the Boathouse at the end of the TT to receive our donations, and this will give us the perfect opportunity to get some photographs taken, and perhaps some publicity for The Motherwell Times.




Food Bank Collection Jan 2017

The Committee have recently agreed to a proposal to support the Basic Food Bank, which is local to us, having bases in Motherwell, Wishaw, Airdrie and Bellshill.

We will be encouraging runners at the monthly Time Trials to bring along items of non-perishable foods, toiletries, nappies, etc. You can bring as many, or as little items as you choose, and Elaine will make sure these are collected on the night and dropped off at the local base in Motherwell.

We will put reminders out on Facebook and the website on the lead up to the Time Trial, but it is hoped that you will all support this venture, and help those less fortunate than ourselves, much of the time through no fault of their own.

This is also an excellent way to get rid of all those unwanted boxes of chocolates, biscuits and selection boxes that you’re never going to eat anyway because you’re a fine tuned athlete…simply put them away, and bring them down to January’s Time Trial on 10 January.
