Christmas Appeal East Ayrshire Churches Homelessness Action:
Dunlop delivered two car loads of beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts, bags of food and cash donations. Janice Grant, EACHa organiser was delighted: 'We are especially grateful for the gifts of food, and cash for the food parcels. The food was distributed to the young people of the Blue Triangle. Dunlop folks donated the magnificent sum of £390, which allowed us to purchase 72 food parcels for hostel residents, and everyone in temporary accommodation. These parcels included the ingredients for a three course Christmas lunch, and we are very grateful for the generosity of Dunlop members in making this possible. These parcels really make a difference to people at a time of crisis.'
The Kirk Session appreciates the support this appeal always receives from the congregation and the wider community.
A wonderful sum of £428.86 was raised at the Watchnight Service. This is shared equally between Christian Aid and Shelter. Thanks to all who contributed.
