A STIRLING group looking to support people in coronavirus self-isolation has received a cash boost to fund its community larder over the winter.

The Ladies of the Rock received £500 from Bannockburn House Trust ahead of what is expected to be a difficult winter period.

Dorothy Morrow, of Ladies of the Rock which was set up in response to the Covid-19 crisis, said: “We are extremely grateful to Bannockburn House for their generous donation.

“They have helped keep our community larder well stocked through the summer and autumn with their amazing array of fresh vegetables and fruit.

“This funding will help us through the winter months when we need to purchase fruit and vegetables for the larder, keeping our community supplied with healthy food.”

The Ladies of the Rock also provide emergency food parcels to people in the area, while welcoming folks to the community food larder every Wednesday evening between 7pm and 8pm at their Bannockburn base.

Sheila Taylor, of Bannockburn House Trust, added: “The house is owned by the community and we want to support local people as much as we can.

“Ladies of the Rock have done such an amazing amount of work, week in week out, to help vulnerable people in this time of need.

“We’re honoured to be able to help them continue their brilliant efforts.”
