The total sum realised for Mary’s Meals by way of the ‘pennies’ collection at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church was an excellent £356.12. A cheque for that amount has been sent to the Charity.
Thanks to everyone who supported this project and especially to Barbara B. who had the unenviable task of emptying all the jars, and ‘hauling’ their contents to the bank.
Knitters in the congregation are invited to help themselves to wool from the basket in the vestibule at church or at the back of the hall in Balloch to knit items for baby bundles for this charity. Any form of baby clothes would be appreciated – don’t worry about dark colours – or six-inch squares to make blankets. More information can be found in our church newsletter. Thanks a million to Margaret Robinson for her kind donation and to Elizabeth Snedden and Anne Morrison.
