Carlops Rises to the Challenge

From the Allan Ramsay Community Shop

From Rosie and Kenny at the Ramsay:
Many thanks to everyone in the neighbourhood who donated to the Food Facts and Friends Food bank in Penicuik. The online donations have been excellent! And with special mention to David and Moira Gray, Liz Sinclair and Mr Tom Alexander for their wonderful generosity at this difficult time. Mark who runs the centre at St Mungo’s wanted to thank also Carlops Church for all their kind donations in the past and hope that the Church will be back up and running again soon. And of course a big thank you to our volunteers: Misha, Will Cutting, Kate and Jamie Rutherford, Matt Shaw, Iain John, Hannah and Guy for doing deliveries of both essential shopping and hot food takeaways. HAPPY EASTER from all of us, thank you!
