Community raises over £2,000 for Falkirk Food Bank after trailers deliberately torched


A fundraiser has been set up to help a food bank in Falkirk after two of their trailers were deliberately set on fire.

Roots Foodbank volunteers were left heartbroken after the vicious crime just off Murnin Road in Bonnybridge at around 9.15pm on Monday May 30.

Generous locals have already raised over £2,000 through the GoFundMe.

One of the trailers was used during the festive season to take Santa Claus and his helpers through the streets of Banknock, Bonnybridge and Denny.

A major investigation by Police Scotland continues as officers work desperately to find the sick people responsible.

A force spokesman said: “We were made aware of a fire at an industrial unit near Murnin Road in Bonnybridge at approximately 9.30pm on Monday 30th May.

“The fire was put out by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and no one was injured.
