Easter Appeal thanks

180325_025 Easter Egg Collection, Cumbernauld Old Parish ChurchCumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to thank everyone who supported our annual Easter Egg Appeal. There was a huge response to our appeal for people to donate chocolate Easter Eggs for distribution to needy children through our local food bank. A whole car-load of eggs was collected and it was both wonderful and humbling to see such a generous response from our congregation.

Thanks, too, to everyone who hand-knitted ‘chicks’ over the last few weeks and those who provided the small chocolate cream- or caramel-filled eggs to go inside them. They were an amazing ‘hit’ with everyone who saw them and supply barely matched demand! By Easter Day we reckon that about £87 was raised by this fantastic idea.
