An opticians on George Street pledged its support for Hope Kitchen, and recently visited the group to deliver a trolley full of food donations.

'Take in a Tin'

Local charity and foodbank Hope Kitchen, launched its ‘Take in a Tin’ campaign earlier this year and Specsavers Oban answered the callout by placing a jazzed up shopping trolley in-store to collect donations.

The store team with help from the local community, filled the trolley with tins and bags of food which they then presented to Hope Kitchen to help those in need.

A word from our store director

Ken Macdonald, Specsavers Oban store director, said: ‘Buying a couple extra cans in a weekly shop and then donating them is a simple gesture that can have such a huge positive impact on the lives of others.

‘It’s been fantastic to see the support from the local community and our store team which has allowed us to make a great donation to Hope Kitchen, a big thank you to everyone involved.’
