Eight sector heats, which will also offer business a networking platform, will take place at the Sighthill Powerleague in Edinburgh across the summer, with the national final due to be staged on September 1 at a venue to be confirmed.

Ian Esson, Scotland Partnership Coordinator for the Trussell Trust said: “We are delighted that Business Fives has chosen to partner with The Trussell Trust network of foodbanks in Scotland.

“These contributions will literally transform the lives of men, women and children across the whole of Scotland who are unable to put food on the table by ensuring we support our foodbanks well so they can support our communities well.”
