Bank on James to help you out

Credit Union director James Coyle already invests a great deal of time helping improve the financial health of NHS staff.
And now the nursing auxiliary is taking on another voluntary role – with the Greater Maryhill Foodbank.
Explaining the motivation for tackling this new challenge, James said: “The vast majority of people relying on foodbanks are working people, those who are ill, on low wages and zero-hour contracts, and I thought this could easily be me. I can’t build or even paint anything, but I can do voluntary work like this to help people.”
James has been seeking contributions from colleagues at the Southern General Hospital and beyond. He describes the response to date as “overwhelming and fantastic”, adding: “It‘s not just food that’s needed – there is also a demand for clothes, toys, toiletries and feminine hygiene products.”
