COVID-19 Appeal

The Evening Express and Original 106 have joined forces with four charities to help the vulnerable during this time of crisis.

We are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Aberdeen Cyrenians, CFINE, Social Bite and Aberdeen Foyer to make sure no one is left struggling for basic necessities during the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, the Evening Express is also donating cash to the campaign to buy food and household items for the worst hit.

To make sure Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire remains fed they are appealing to people to donate food and household essentials.

All four charities are appealing for tinned meals, rice, pasta, cleaning products, soap, washing power and toilet tissues.

They can be handed to the charity at Sainsbury’s at Berryden, Asda at Middleton Park and the Tesco stores at Wellington Road and in Westhill.
