Burns Night

A team of colleagues – led by dedicated community champion Hollie Scott – have donated around 40 haggises, 20 neeps and more than 20 kilos of tatties to the appeal.

The donation, which took place in store, was well-received by volunteers from the charity, which aims to help those less fortunate in the community. For over 45 years, the Aberdeen Cyrenians has been working with the homeless and vulnerable by transforming their lives and providing prevention, alleviation, rehabilitation and resettlement services to those that need it.

The charity runs a ‘street alternatives’ service where they provide hot meals for the homeless. The donation of haggis, neeps and tatties will ensure those disadvantaged in the city will also get to enjoy a delicious Burns supper in memory of the Scottish bard.

Hollie Scott, community champion at Asda Bridge of Dee, said: “We thrilled to have been able to help support the Cyrenians and wider community in this way. Burns Night is a time for when we should all be able to get together and celebrate our national bard over a delicious and warming meal of haggis, neeps and tatties.”
