ONE of Gourock's most popular venues has donated its food supplies to for vulnerable people after being forced to close due in the coronavirus clampdown.

Cafe Continental's team delivered their kitchen stocks to Belville Community Garden.

The charity is leading an effort to send self-isolation boxes to people who have to stay indoors.

Other business including the Waterwheel, Costa Coffee and One Cove Road have also helped the team keep up with demand.

Manager Laura Reilly said: "It helps so much because we are running out of supplies to fill the self-isolation boxes.

"We have had to start dipping into our reserves.

"It is such a shame that the businesses are having to close, but their donations mean so much to us."

The Belville volunteers have been moved by other acts of kindness, including one woman leaving money with Robert Alexander Butchers in Port Glasgow to donate food.

Laura added: "I am expecting the demand to increase this week but our priority is also to keep our volunteers and staff safe as well."

Cafe Continental closed their doors on Friday as pubs and restaurants were told to shut.

Boss Gregg McLeod said: "It is good that the supplies are not going to waste.

"We are glad to help."

Belville are appealing for other businesses who have been forced to close and have supplies to get in touch with them.

Their volunteers are making up the packages while local charity Compassionate Inverclyde deliver them.

In the last week hundreds of people have offered to help the effort.
