Caol and Lochyside Community Response Group has opened a ‘Community Cupboard’ at Caol Shopping Centre for anyone needing help during the coronavirus lockdown.

The cupboard contains non- perishable foods, cleaning products, toiletries, hygiene products, books and jigsaws.

There is a drop-off point for cupboard donations in Caol Co-op and plans are in place for a second cupboard in Lochyside.

Two of the group's younger volunteers, Lucy and Angus Riddle, display their official badges. NO-F19-Caol-support-young-volunteers.jpg
