A  new donation point has been set up in an Oban supermarket so shoppers can support people in need living in their community.

To help food charities in their vital work, Tesco all over the UK is installing new donation points to collect long-life food in all of its stores.

The supermarket chain will also be topping up customer donations by an additional 20 per cent in the form of a cash donation to the charity Fareshare.

Customer donations will help Fareshare in its efforts to support people in Oban, with regular donations needed more than ever due to the extra pressure placed on the charity by the Covid-19 pandemic.

By looking at the donation point, customers will be able to see which food items their local charity needs most.
