Glasgow Warriors team up with Whiteinch foodbank
Glasgow Warriors will be giving back to the local community this festive season, teaming up with a Whiteinch foodbank to help those in need over the Christmas period.
The foodbank – run by Whiteinch Church of Scotland – aims to reach and support the most in-need members of the community, distributing emergency food parcels as well as providing a drop-in service for those in the local community.
As part of the club’s support, players and staff will be donating to the foodbank ahead of Saturday’s meeting with La Rochelle at Scotstoun.
Supporters attending the match are also being encouraged to donate – collection points will be open around the stadium from 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon until kick-off at 5.15pm.
Further information, including details on the specific locations of drop-off points at Scotstoun can be found below:
