Warrior Nation helping Well-Fed to make a difference

These may be unprecedented times for everyone, but one constant certainly remains – time and time again, the Warrior Nation are willing to go above and beyond to put the local community first.

Asked to
help Well-Fed Scotland in pursuit of a £20,000 fundraising goal, Glasgow
Warriors supporters stepped up when it counted. The target was smashed with a
full 24 hours to spare, with the totaliser eventually reading £21,803 when the
final whistle was blown on the Crowdfunder page on Friday night.

The campaign’s
success means that the Whiteinch social enterprise can continue to support
those most in-need during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, providing food parcels
and pre-prepared meals to those at social and economic risk.

“I wanted to
take a moment to personally thank each and every person at the Glasgow
Warriors,” said Chris Gray, Managing Director of Well-Fed Scotland.

particular, I want to say a special thank-you to the Warrior Nation and each
and every fan who rallied in support of our cause, pledged money and then went
on to share our cause with your family and friends.

“From the
players giving their support, to everyone working behind the scenes to support
Well-Fed during this unprecedentedly difficult time, you enabled us to reach
our target.

“The money
raised will allow Well-Fed to continue to provide freshly prepared meals and
emergency food parcels to those in our communities who need it most. Well-Fed
has seen a 500% increase in referrals over the past three weeks and your
support will ensure that we’re able to meet this demand and ensure that no-one
in our community has to go without a meal or food in their cupboards and

“Thank you –
we truly couldn’t have done this without you!”
