Well Done Girls

A group of girls named Amie, Millie, Lucy and Lucie carried out a bake sale and raised over £300 for The Gate Charity. The four girls organised the whole event themselves, baked and sold cakes in their own street. They wore masks, gloves and had hand sanitiser for their customers, all COVID-19 friendly. We are so proud of the girls, they did great! What an inspiration these girls are to young people living within Clackmannanshire. Thank You So Very Much!!

Kids @ The Gate

During the Easter break, any family could visit The Gate Centre on a Tuesday or Thursday between 12 – 12.30pm to receive a free lunch bag. Every child received a health sandwich, a bottle of water, two pieces of fruit, crisps and a small treat. We hope to offer a similar service during the summer holidays. The purpose of this project is to provide any primary school child with a healthy lunch during school holidays.

Huge Thanks to the Forth Valley Hospital’s Acute Mental Health Team

The Gate Foodbank would like to give a huge thank you to the nurses and doctors from the Acute Assessment Mental Health team at Forth Valley Hospital, for their fantastic effort of raising £3,080.00. We hope you have all recovered from your 10k running challenge and that the knowledge that you have helped support some of the most vulnerable people and families in Clackmannanshire will ease your aching muscles!

Well done, and thank you to all who took part and to all who donated money to this worthwhile cause. We very much appreciate it!!
