A huge thank-you to everyone who took part in this year’s Christian Aid Week at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. We recently counted the money collected and are delighted to announce that £1900.29 was raised by the door-to-door, congregation and ‘neighbours’ donations. A further £311 was raised at the Boys’ Brigade Annual Display.
When one adds the Gift Aid pledged on those donations, the final total raised for Christian Aid is a wonderful £2433.83.
That is an impressive amount of money, especially as there were only six door-to-door collectors this year. Thanks are due to them, and to our BB Company, but also to everyone in the congregation who invited their ‘Christmas Card neighbours’ to donate; this really has made a huge difference to the total amount raised. This contribution to Christian Aid will hopefully have a considerable impact on the women of Sierra Leone.
Thanks again, everyone!
Kildrum Parish Church is holding a Quiz Night and raffle on Saturday 2nd February at 7.00pm. The money raised from this event will be going towards Natalie Dunn’s trip to Machu Picchu, Peru. She is walking the Inca Trail in October to raise money for GirlGuiding and needs to raise £4000 overall. This event will help towards reaching that goal.
Around half the overall money raised goes to GirlGuiding while the other half goes towards covering the expenses of the trip such as paying doctors to come, to cover accommodation at either end of the trip (the rest is camping on the mountain), the food and the flights.
Teams can be minimum of two people up to eight people maximum. Tickets are £2 per head with tickets available at the door, where you will also be asked how many are in your team. You can also book tickets ahead through Natalie Dunn using Messenger; she will take note of your name and put tickets aside.
Sign-up or find out further information about the event on our Facebook page.
The poppy-making craft sessions at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church were such a success, with everyone having fun working together and enjoying the chat over tea or coffee and crafts, that a Craft Group is now being organised to continue the fun and fellowship.
We will meet in the Session House at Cumbernauld Old from 2:00 – 4:00pm on Thursday afternoons, starting this week, and everyone will be made most welcome.
