Aberdeen bank branch opens collection point for homelessness community group
An Aberdeen bank is working with a community group to help people who are homeless in the city.
The Yorkshire Building Society branch on Union Street has established a collection point for Street Friends Aberdeen and is collecting tea, coffee and non-perishable food.
Street Friends Aberdeen has a team of volunteers to offer an outreach programme to the city’s vulnerable and homeless community.
Cheryl Hyland, customer consultant at the Aberdeen branch of Yorkshire Building Society, said: “We are proud to be able to support the charity with our collection point.”
Items can be donated at 355 Union Street from 9am-4.30pm every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, and from 9.30am-4.30pm on a Wednesday.
A spokesperson for Street Friends added: “We are really grateful that Yorkshire Building Society are helping us collect much-needed items that will help us continue to provide our services.”
