Refugees: a practical response
Cumbernauld Supporting Refugees, Cornerstone Church and our local MP and MSP are working together to collect clothes and footwear for refugees arriving in Europe. Anyone wishing to donate clothes and/or footwear can drop them off at Cornerstone in the Town Centre on Wednesday 25th November between 4pm and 7pm. Should this not be convenient, donations can also be dropped off at the MP's Constituency Office, 13 The Wynd, during office hours. All donations are being transported to Serbia by Glasgow The Caring City.
Christmas Craft Fair
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this year’s Christmas Fair. Through everyone’s hard work and generosity we have so far raised a total of £1300. Thanks to everyone who donated goods, to all those who helped set up beforehand, staff the stalls and clear up afterwards. Huge thanks too to Elizabeth Snedden and Anne Morrison who organised this year’s Fair. Well done and thanks again to everyone.
Festival of Light - Sunday 6th December
The annual Festival of Light Service takes place on Sunday 6th December at St Mungo’s Parish Church in the Town Centre at 7.30pm. Please come if you can and join the congregation to sing carols, hear readings from the Bible and listen to the Croy Silver Band and the Gaelic Choir. It will be a memorable evening and we look forward to welcoming you. Should you require further details please speak to Liz Dalling or Lesley Littlejohn.
Fill a suitcase for Malawi
The daughters of one of our members are going to Malawi next year as part of their school programme. They have been allocated an extra suitcase allowance and tasked with filling it with baby clothes to take out with them.
When Helen Urquhart heard about the tremendous success of our previous project, she asked if we would be willing to help the girls fill that suitcase. Baby jackets, cardigans, hats and bootees of any pattern or colour would be much appreciated. Wool will be available shortly – keep an eye on the vestibule (or at the back of the Hall at Balloch). In the meantime, if you have any questions, just speak to Elizabeth (726451) or Ivy (728063).
Cumbernauld Food Banks
Our Session House is open every Friday from 11am until 12.30pm as a satellite distribution centre for the food-bank based at Cornerstone House.
Thank-you for your donations to date and, unfortunately as this looks like a long-term commitment, donations are still very welcome - mainly of tinned goods, please: e.g. mince, stew, curry, hot dogs, chopped ham / pork, spaghetti, macaroni cheese, ravioli, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard, plus tea bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits.
With the Session House open weekly as a distribution centre we can also accept toiletries as well. Please continue to use the box for donated items in the Church vestibule and you can also leave items when we worship at the Forge in Balloch.
