Generous firms support Grangemouth community project

Two more local businesses have helped Kersiebank Community Project (KCP) continue to support home schooling youngsters and help feed families and individuals who are struggling during the COVID-19 lockdown.

KCP, based in La Porte Precinct, Grangemouth, recently branched out into the world of technology and managed to secure 10 computers, complete with desks and chairs, to give free of charge to those families who need them most during the current COVID-19 lockdown.

Now the team at MGM Timber, in the town’s West Mains Industrial Estate, has provided a donation which means KCP will be able to order another two computer sets.

A project spokesperson said: “Please private message us on Facebook to tell us why your family needs one of these computer sets. We shall take all comments to committee and then distribute the computers to the most needy.”

The computers come complete with a 19 inch screen, keyboard, mouse and a Windows 10 operating system with a link to free Microsoft 365 web based office apps.

One of Kersiebank’s main roles is providing vital food packages for people and they have been assisted in this endeavour by staff at Booker Wholesale Cash and

Carry, in Middlefield Industrial Estate, Falkirk, with a donation of three full trolleys of food.

Earlier in the month KCP teamed up with Helix Hotel owner Nawaz Haq, to provide burger treats.

Mr Haq noticed KCP gave freebie lunches to kids and our the elderly but had overlooked the parents/guardians who are doing a fabulous job homeschooling so he has offered up free Helix inside out burgers, chicken burgers or veggie burgers.
