Montrose Community Trust launch a new Community Assist Scheme initiative

In association with Montrose Football ClubMontrose Community Trust has launched a new initiative, ‘Hot Meal Distribution’, as part of the COVID-19 Community Assist Scheme. 

Through its ‘Community Assist Scheme’ Montrose Community Trust are continuing to use the power and appeal of football to change lives and communities, throughout the town in Scotland.

The Trust is committed to supporting those most in need in the local community, and their extensive range of programmes are designed to address locally identified needs, whether it be assisting those who are unemployed, living in isolation, recovering from an addiction and/or living with dementia, to name just a few of the trust’s areas of work.

Through this scheme, both the club and trust are helping others through the delivery of food packages, taking people to appointments, offering befriending sessions for those in isolation or those who are suffering from poor mental health and more!

And, with thanks to the support of volunteer caterers and drivers, the Montrose Community Trust is now preparing and delivering free hot lunches to those that have been identified – in association with Voluntary Action Angus and Angus Council– as being most in need of such during these difficult times.

In addition to the new ‘HOT MEAL DISTRIBUTION’ action, the Scheme also includes:

  • BEFRIENDING CALLS!
  • HOME SCHOOLING SUPPORT!
  • FOOD BANK DONATIONS
  • FREE ESSENTIAL TRANSPORT
  • TEAM TALK CONFERENCE CALLS/MEETINGS
