Instant Neighbour Foodbank and SSPCA Donations

It is the time of year when we should be thinking of those people and animals who are in need.

It is a sad fact that many people in the UK increasingly find themselves relying on food banks. Aberdeen, despite its wealth and status as the Oil Capital of Europe, is no exception.

Instant Neighbour has provided emergency food parcels to individuals in serious need for over twenty years.

Regrettably, many of the problems encountered by individuals coming  are becoming more, rather than less prevalent. As such, the demand for food parcels continues to increase.

In 2012, they provided 1,346 food parcels to 485 different clients.In 2013, this rose to 3,051 parcels going to 970 different clients.

In 2014, this rose to 3,640 parcels going to 1,383 clients.

In 2015 they provided 3,877 food parcels to 1,237 different clients.

In 2016 they issued just over 5195 food parcels to 1270 different clients.

In 2017 this rose again to 6905 parcels for 2443 different clients.


If you can help us to continue to deliver this vital service, Instant Neighbour and their clients would be grateful.

Here is a shopping list of non-perishable items that you can donate to their Food Bank;

Red and White Day Assembly:

Red and White Day Assembly:


The school was ablaze with red and white colours today.


We had a special visitor to our Red and White Assembly this morning too.  Donny the Sheep joined our assembly to show off his dance moves and to get us singing some songs to cheer on the Dons for Sunday’s League Cup Final.


Special mention must go to some of our P2 children who had made special cup final posters with very good drawings of some of Aberdeen’s star players.
