GLASGOWS NO.1 BABY & FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICE (SCO47779)
HELPING HANDS DON'T JUDGE!!!
THE CHILDREN OF GLASGOW NEED YOUR HELP THIS CHRISTMAS
A Bit of Background
2020 has so far blown our minds with the way it has turned out, wouldnt you agree???
Well, if us adults find it mindblowing, imagine how those young minds in our city are coping!!!
With Christmas fastly approaching, it is time for us to launch our christmas campaign to support vulnerable kids this christmas. If you are familiar with our service you will know that every year we support kids in Glasgow who are at risk of not having a visit from Santa, by giving them a Christmas pack of 5 toys and a warm jacket.
Last year we helped a whopping 802 kids which was double the amount of the previous year. This year , with all that has happened due to the pandemic, we are expecting those numbers to rise again.
It is a very trying time for us as a charity, as we have lost the premises we normally use for our christmas appeal AND we have lost 50% of our donators due to office blocks and companies closing down. This puts us in a very strange position full of doubt and uncertainty.
WE NEED YOUR HELP GLASGOW!!!
THIS SERVICE WAS BUILT AND DESIGNED AROUND PEOPLE POWER AND WE NEED PEOPLE TO COME TOGETHER MORE THAN EVER NOW. WE NEED DONATIONS OF TOYS, GAMES, BOOKS AND JACKETS URGENTLY TO PREPARE FOR THE CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN. THIS IS THE ONLY TIME OF THE YEAR WE ASK THAT PEOPLE DONATE GOODS THAT ARE NEW OR VERY VERY NEARLY NEW. THESE DONATIONS ARE MADE TO ENABLE US TO KEEP THOSE YOUNG MINDS BELIEVING, AND TO ENSURE THE OLDER MINDS DO NOT FEEL LEFT OUT.
WHY NOT START A COLLECTION BETWEEN FRIENDS, FAMILY OR WORKMATES? ANY WAY SHAPE OR FOM THAT YOU CAN HELP THIS YEAR GLASGOW, i CAN ASSURE YOU IT WILL BE EXTREMELY APPRECIATED AND THE KIDS IN GLASGOW WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER.
