'Food bank is vital', says mum

Written byPat Scott

A MUM of three whose family was helped by a food bank in their moment of need has become one of its strongest supporters.

Vicky Harper's story is one of redundancy putting her own family in a crisis which saw them seek help from a local foodbank so they could eat on Christmas Day.

Now, six years later Vicky is a staunch supporter of her local foodbank and four times a year gathers together collections of food from family, friends and others to support the work of the foodbank.

You can read Vicky's story in this week's Huntly Express, which is in the shops now.
