After a huge response to their inaugural Festival Food Bank Raffle last year they will again this year ask for donations to Drumchapel Food Bank in exchange for raffle tickets, with visitors getting one raffle ticket for every item they bring on the list below.

There are five pairs of tickets available to win at each of the two sessions at Hampden Park, with the draw being done live on Facebook next week from the Bon Accord in Charing Cross.

Last year a full van of donations was collected at each session with hundreds of raffle tickets given out.

Julie Hamilton, Director of Glasgow’s Whisky Festival and Chair of Glasgow’s Whisky Club said: “We were absolutely stunned by the response to our collection last year. To be able to help some of the most deprived families in one of this city’s most deprived areas was something we have wanted to do for a while and just had to repeat again this year.

"A huge thank you to everyone who brings something along on the day as it’s all for a very, very good cause!”
