Thank you to all the pro-life women who came to our ladies’ lunch on Saturday, in honour of St Margaret of Scotland. We know how much work you have done for the pro-life cause over the years. It was great to have such a big gathering (436 women) and was a very encouraging and enjoyable afternoon. We will be in touch with you all soon. Here’s a video to remember the occasion:

Thanks so much for all your support. Over the months of May and June, your donations have been used to support 73 vulnerable families. We have had phone calls from many women in crisis pregnancies needing support. We also had a successful Rachel’s Vineyard retreat, for those suffering after abortion, with 12 participants. We hope to start up a new team in the Dundee area to run Rachel’s Vineyard retreats there too.
We have been blessed to have many individuals coming to the door to donate baby equipment they are no longer in need of. The Amazon wish list, in June, was a big success and we had all of the items we wanted donated! We have had a great response to our appeal for toys this month- thanks to your generosity we have enough toys for the moment and will once again be able to respond to toy requests.
The Knights of St Columba have been brilliant in providing practical support to us- a group from the University came to check, clean and pack cots to be given out. Brian Henry brought a group of Knights to paint the doors of the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative building.
And of course we are ever grateful to our regular volunteers who come to sort through all the donations and make up packs of clothes and toiletries to give out to those in need.
In terms of what we need now, we are well stocked with donations of items and clothing to be sorted through.
If anyone is going to IKEA, please buy some of those big blue bags for us- we use these to package clothing that we give out.

We were delighted to receive a beautiful bunch of flowers, with chocolates and a card, from a Mum we helped some years ago. Thank you!

Thanks to 3 volunteers from the University cell of the Knights of St Columba who came over last week to help us check, clean and assemble cots to be given to families we help. The Knights of St Columba are always supportive of us and we enjoy seeing them at our monthly Pro-Life Masses.

Thank you to St Augustine’s Parish in Milton, who collected £250 over lent to donate to our work at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative. Sr Roseann joined them for Mass this morning and was presented with a cheque.

Thanks so much for all your support. Over the months of March and April, your donations have been used to support 93 vulnerable families.
We have been blessed to have many individuals coming to the door to donate baby equipment they are no longer in need of. Before Easter, the Knights of St Columba (Council 8, Clydebank) donated Easter eggs and we were able to redistribute these. In April we also had a visit from Fr Michael John, parish priest of St James’ Church in St Andrews, who drove over to Glasgow with a van full of items that had been donated by his parishioners.
Items that we are in need of currently are:
Ikea bags – the big blue ones (we use these to package clothing that we give out)
Baby boy outfits for aged 0-3 months (please only donate clean laundered clothing and clearly label the bag ‘BOY 0-3 MONTHS’)
