As you will see from the photos in the magazine the boxes sent from us at Mearns Kirk last year, have finally arrived. The Kirk Session were delighted to find walking frames, crutches, hand tools, wheelchairs and clothing in the packages. As you will see, some of this equipment is already being utilised by people whose disabilities prevented them from getting out of their homes. It is wonderful that all the goods have arrived safely and without any damage.
A huge thank you to everyone who made this possible. As you know, rather than sending boxes, we have sent money to set up a grain mill. This will be available for the wider community and it is hoped that this self-help project will support their independence.
The elderly people in the villages continue to be grateful for the monthly support they receive from members of the congregation. If anyone would like to be involved in this project, please speak or email Isobel Dawson at 07984 064773 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
