LAMBHILL STABLES FOOD PROVISION UPDATE
Lambhill Stables would like to give an update on the upcoming changes to our food parcel provision.
Our last day for providing food parcels will be Friday 18th September 2020. Unfortunately, our funding to provide this service will come to an end at this point. We have been so happy to assist our local community, and to have kept the service going as long as possible, and we hope that our provision has been of help to you during these difficult times.
Below are some useful numbers to request continued support where needed.
