Ms Roddick said: “It truly was amazing and encouraging to see the level of kindness shown by volunteers and third sector organisations in Inverness.

“Each place had its own unique framework and had an obvious passion for others and the work that they do. A lot of work is still to be done surrounding stigma and food poverty. These places are essential resources to so many people struggling to make ends meet.
