Kirkhill Community Centre has developed a Community Cupboard to provide supplies to anyone that needs them during the COVID-19 crisis. The idea is not only to help those who can’t get out and about, but to help prevent people from having to travel to Beauly by bus to pick up essentials. It is stocked with donations of non-perishables, bread, milk, eggs and frozen ready meals. It also gets donations from Tesco through Fare Share. Anyone can use the cupboard.
- Mondays 09:00 to 15:00 (best day for bread, fruit and veg)
- Tuesdays 10:00 to 12:30 (Post Office also open)
- Wednesday 13:30 to 15:30
- Thursday 13:30 to 15:30
- Fridays 10:00 to 13:00 (Post Office also open)
- Saturday 13:30 to 15:30
The door will be open during opening times. Please make sure you adhere to the social distancing guidelines if there are other folks around.
If you need a food box delivered contact Brenda who can arrange a delivery.
Please leave a donation to help with restocking if you can – if you can’t, it’s a gift.
Donations are very welcome – a tin of soup, a tub of custard if that is all you can manage will be fantastic. Items can be dropped off in the blue barrel at front door of Kirkhill Community Centre.

Hand Sanitiser Refill Station
A hand sanitiser refill station is available in the community centre at the same time as the Community Cupboard is open. This is thanks to Dr Ross Jaffrey and the Safe Hands, Saves Lives project. Any frontline worker/volunteer including: carers; shop assistants; delivery persons etc can top-up their own bottles.
