TAYLOR Swift has donated to food banks across Edinburgh after her record-breaking shows at Murrayfield.

The Edinburgh Food Project (EFP) has revealed it was contacted by the singer’s team ahead of her first gig at the home of Scottish Rugby much to their “surprise”.

Swift made a donation to the Trussell Trust charity which runs seven food banks across the capital, with the EFP saying it will have a “lasting impact” on families in Edinburgh.

The charity said it had agreed not to share the specific amount donated but confirmed "it will make a big difference" to the people the food bank supports with already 10,000 food parcels made this year alone.

Bethany Biggar, Edinburgh Food Project director, said: “We are thrilled that Taylor has decided to support the food banks and leave a lasting impact on Edinburgh. Things are really tough for a lot of people right now, so it is lovely to see someone like Taylor spreading such positivity.”

The charity is now encouraging others to follow their hero and donate £13 - in a nod to Swift's lucky number - to add even more to the appeal.

Swift broke the all-time attendance record for a stadium show in Scotland for three nights in a row, after she played to 222,000 fans from June 7 to June 9.

She performed a set list of around 45 songs including four different mash-up surprise songs on each night.

A post on Instagram after her final show said: “Edinburgh!!! You truly blew me away this weekend. Thank you for breaking the all-time attendance record for a stadium show in Scotland 3 times in a row and for all the ways you made us feel right at home. Love you, all 220,000 of you.”
