The Lang Foundation, established in 1987 by Charles and Stella Lang, seeks to support a wide range of charities and charitable activities. Funding priority is given to support the Scottish fundraising activities of CJ Lang and Son Limited staff and to charities based in areas in which CJ Lang operates.


The Lang Foundation started to support the Foodstore@PNK (based in Penicuik) in December 2019, providing tinned meals and vegetables.  The Foodstore runs a project called ‘No Kid Goes Hungry’ to provide lunches for families in crisis, in the absence of school lunches.  At Christmas time we give all three meals a day to families as identified by care professionals.


We have supported families for the past 8 years.  However this year has been especially challenging, particularly since most of the regular volunteers were unable to help due to their vulnerability. Eunice (a Supervisor at SPAR Dalkeith) stepped up as Foodstore Organiser with the assistance of community volunteers.


This year, the hampers consisted of 3 meals a day for 7 days for each family member.  We gave to 30 families (47 adults and 81 children) totaling 2688 meals in the week before Christmas.  The Lang Foundation provided Christmas treat items for the families.

 

If you’re involved in charitable work that benefits your local community and you’d like to apply for funding, an application form can be easily downloaded from our website www.cjlang.co.uk

 

Application forms can be submitted online via the website or can be posted directly to Tom Hayes, Treasurer of the Lang Foundation.
