Christmas Appeal East Ayrshire Churches Homelessness Action:
This year there will again be a collection of gifts for children affected by homelessness at Christmas.
Would you please mark the gifts for a boy or a girl and with the relevant age range.
There will also be a collection of tinned goods for the homeless hostels in Kilmarnock and Cumnock so that the residents can have a festive meal on Christmas day.
Donations of cash to help with the purchase of these goods will also be welcome if you are unable to arrange a children’s gift.
Could the gifts please be brought to church by Sunday, 9th December so that they can be delivered to Kilmarnock for distribution before Christmas.
If you are unable to bring them to church, or would prefer to donate money, please contact: Margo McMurdo 01560 484824 or Lesley Beaton 01560 484989.
