RBS turning conference centre into foodbank amid coronavirus crisis

Mar 28, 2020 8:30 PM ET

Royal Bank of Scotland is converting its conference centre at its Gogarburn headquarters in Edinburgh into a foodbank distribution centre.

The high street lender is asking businesses to bring in any perishable food and hygiene products they can spare to the Gogarburn site, where RBS staff will be running an “drive-in” donation system to ensure donors and volunteers can keep their distance.

Malcolm Buchanan, chair of the RBS Scotland board, said: “This is a challenging time for everyone in Scotland and it is important that everyone looks out for one another. This is a time when we can work together to make a positive difference and we are calling on the public and companies who have the time or the resource and to get involved in our appeal.”
