The Boys’ Brigade and Girl Guiding have been thinking about all the poor children and families in our area who are struggling and with Christmas fast approaching we decided to offer our hand of friendship hence the idea of a Gift Service. The Service will be held on Tuesday 5th December at 7pm in the Hartlaw buildings of the church.
All the organisations will contribute in different ways i.e. donate one nights collections, decorate and fill boxes as part of badge work and we wondered if the congregation would like to take part, we would be grateful if you could donate something from the list below.
All donations will stay in our area
We have contacted Local food Banks and Children’s First to come along to our Gift Service to receive our gifts.
