A north-east foodbank has been given £5,000 to buy another electric cargo bike to drop off essential deliveries during the pandemic.
Community Food Initiatives North East (CFine) was awarded the sum by energy giant Vattenfall, which operates the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre in Aberdeen Bay.
It comes after the local Harbour Board last month donated thousands to go towards a similar vehicle.
Chief executive Lisa Duthie said: “We are currently delivering over 1,500 parcels weekly to people experiencing food insecurity.
“The electric cargo bike will be utilised to deliver essentials to families facing hardship, helping us alleviate poverty in the north-east in an eco-friendly way.”
CFine was among a dozen north-east community groups to share £124,000 in funding from the Unlock Our Future fund.
Vattenfall has pledged to invest up to £150,000 in such groups every year until 2039.
Alford District Men’s Shed has been given £15,000 to expand its renewable energy system with new solar and thermal battery storage.
And Buchan Dial-A-Community Bus has been handed the same sum to purchase a seven-seater electric vehicle.
Chairman Spencer Critten said: “This grant will enable us to purchase and provide eco-friendly services for the community we serve.
“We would not be able start this process without the generous funding grant awarded to us from Vattenfall.”
