The SCQFP Team tries to do its bit to support deserving charities all year round, giving the proceeds of its office library twice annually to a charity or charities nominated by the staff.

Given the current situation and the closure of a number of food banks, we decided to donate our latest office library takings to FARE Scotland - a charity based in the East end of Glasgow which works with various community groups to improve people's life chances and aspirations, while also tackling poverty and its symptoms. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the charity has launched an appeal to raise funds to provide food and essentials to the most vulnerable members of the communities it supports.
