ORGANISERS of a project to help people in the Merkinch area of Inverness say they are aiming to keep it going even as lockdown measures are eased.
The Merkinch Food Project, run by Merkinch Partnership, refers people in need to local food banks, as well as using its own funds to provide hot lunches.
It was recently awarded a £1550 grant from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks’ (SSEN) resilient communities fund and is working with Highlands and Islands Enterprise to source further long-term funding.
Manager Anne Sutherland said: “We’ve had a few people phoning who have lost their jobs and some who are furloughed. Our plan is to keep this going.”
The project can be contacted on 07872 014520.
