A POLITICAL stall campaigning on all matters affecting Scotland will be accepting food donations this weekend.

Haddington SNP branch has a stall at the town’s monthly farmers’ market, which takes place on Saturday on Court Street.

However, this month, the group has decided to collect donations for East Lothian Foodbank.

Euan Harper, vice-convenor of the group, said: “We are all in politics to improve people’s lives and as such we should always be ready to help where we can.

“It is tragic in 2018 that action like this is required as no one should be wondering if they will be able to eat or heat.”

“We’re asking folk of all political persuasions to drop off what they can for the foodbank at our stall on Saturday between 10am and noon, as hunger does not debate who it strikes down.”

The pressure mounts at this time of year for foodbanks up and down the country and East Lothian is the same.
