Joining Peter Steel and Jim Harper, co-chairs of GroceryAid’s Scotland Branch, he hosted an invitation-only dinner at The Corinthian Club in Glasgow for over twenty Scottish industry leaders.

Many of those attending were completely unaware of the charity’s services and following an overview by Jane Hill, GroceryAid’s Fundraising Director, there was much discussion as to how to spread the word further within the Scottish industry.

Peter Steel, co-chair of GroceryAid’s Scotland Branch commented, 

“Too many colleagues working in the trade in Scotland – across manufacturing, distribution, wholesale and retail (multiple, co-op and independent) don’t know about the wide range of support they can access through GroceryAid.  This evening allowed us to engage leaders in the Scottish trade in helping to spread the word.”

“GroceryAid is supporting thousands of people from across our trade. The team in Scotland are doing a fantastic job and the evening helped build awareness and provided great support for GroceryAid"- Charles Wilson
