THE Moray Council branch of Unite The Union has donated cash to three local groups in recognition of the hard work they have done throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Unite has donated to the New Elgin Hall committee, who are organising Christmas for less fortunate children in Elgin, Buckie Food Bank, run by Buckie Salvation Army, and Keith Food Bank, coordinated by Keith Hub.

Sandy McGillivray, Moray Council Unite branch secretary, said: "We are delighted to make a donation to these deserving causes in their plight to help many families and people, especially at this time, in our area to overcome hardship and poverty.

"Our thanks go out to the tireless and dedicated staff and volunteers in these organisation for their support in their projects."

Unite is involved with the Unite Christmas Appeal, organised by Unite Scotland and Unite Community as part of the United Nations' international human solidarity day, which is held annually on December 20.

The day also aims to remind people of the importance of solidarity in working towards eradicating poverty.
