BE WARM THIS WINTER WITH OUR WINTER WARMER

By Jennifer Macdonald / October 1, 2023

WINTER WARMER EVENT

Stonehaven Carronside Church is organising a WINTER WARMER event in St. Bridget’s Hall on Saturday 28th October from 10am-3pm.

Our winter warmer event is intended to support those living below the poverty line who are pushed into the position of choosing whether to heat or eat by giving them the chance to get some warm clothing at no cost. Although there are cheaper alternatives, such as charity shops, not everyone can afford to buy the basics needed to get through cold winter months in the north-east.

We are looking for donations for adults and children of clean coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves that may be lying around the house and are no longer needed. They could make a potentially life-saving difference to someone in need. No shoes and no blankets/duvets please.

We have invited other churches and groups in the town to donate items to this project and we are getting word out about this event to invite people to come along and help themselves to what they need. Any items which remain after the event will be donated to Aberdeen Cyrenians or another local charity.

We will accept items at St. Bridget’s Office from Monday 16th October at the following times:

Mondays 9.30-11am

Tuesdays 9.30-11, 2-4pm

Wednesdays 2-4pm

Thursdays 9-12

Please think about what you could donate and if you can help us to set up and run this event please get in touch. Contact Jennifer 07732 384941

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS EVENT TO ANYONE YOU THINK MIGHT APPRECIATE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP WARM THIS WINTER.
