A north-east church has received an overwhelming number of food donations to support its chosen charity throughout lockdown.
Peterculter Parish Church has been collecting food donations for Instant Neighbour for over a decade.
It is now supporting the charity by inviting the entire community, as well as members of the congregation, to donate food every Monday.
The church had to close around two weeks ago due to COVID-19 but has been advertising the collection on Facebook, while the minister had also emailed church members.
Supporters are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items as well as toiletries, which can be deposited in the trolley in the car park outside of the church every Monday between 11am and noon.
Church elder Fiona Jones said: “The response has just been phenomenal, with people donating a vast number of items.
“Food banks are really struggling right now and Instant Neighbours really do appreciate the genorosity that’s been shown.
“I understand everyone is in the same position but all these bits and pieces that are being donated are making a difference. Every little does help a lot.”
The collection has been running for two weeks and will continue to operate throughout the rest of lockdown.
Mrs Jones added: “If anyone can pick up an extra item in their weekly shop to donate, that would be greatly appreciated.”
