Handbags wanted!

Many women have old handbags lurking at the back of their wardrobes, either used or waiting to be used ‘some day’. Cumbernauld Old might just have the solution.

Between now and 4th December we will be collecting for the Lanarkshire Baby Bank Christmas Handbag Appeal. We would invite you to join the Handbag Appeal by donating a handbag and fill it with some of these suggested items, things that we all take for granted but most of the mums this charity supports struggle to buy: toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, wipes, shampoo, conditioner, brush, comb, bobbles, lip gloss, nail polish, moisturiser, sanitary products, soap, hats, gloves, fluffy socks, razors, hand sanitiser, mouthwash, chocolate and sweets.

Elizabeth Snedden and Anne Morrison will co-ordinate the donations and will be happy to receive handbags and any of the items on the list for this local charity. There will be a box in the church vestibule at the Village and in the Forge hall at Balloch for your donations of handbags, items on the wish list, or both. Thanks for your help. It will make a big difference.

You can find our more about the Lanarkshire Baby Bank on their Facebook page.

World Mission Stamp Appeal

We are asking members of Cumbernauld Old to collect their used stamps over the Christmas period and donate them to the Church of Scotland’s 2015 Stamp Appeal. This year’s appeal is for the kirk’s HIV Programme which supports 29 projects in 17 countries, including Scotland.

Please just cut the stamps from your envelopes, leaving a margin of paper around the edges, and pop them in the box in the church vestibule or the back of the hall at the Forge. We’ll run the project until mid-January, after which the used stamps will be sent off to the project co-ordinator.
