How u can help.

Benefit cuts, unemployment and rising living costs have led to an increase in the number of people in Scotland using food banks. Rickshaw aims to give hope to the people in Glasgow. We want to help those people in our city who can’t afford to look after themselves fully, providing them with food and toiletries and by helping to meet some of their basic needs. You can be part of helping out by making donation or handing in food at our charity shop in 525 Victoria Road, Govanhill.
