The Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative office will be closed on Thursday 29th March, Friday 30th March and Monday 2nd April. We will re-open at 9:30 am on Tuesday 3rd April. If you need urgent help whilst the office is closed, please contact the Sisters at the convent on 0141 422 2634.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE DONATIONS OUTSIDE the door, as this only encourages theft and vermin.
Wishing you all a blessed Easter!

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 are in desperate need of donations of toys, particularly for children under 5 years old. Due to the volume of requests for toys that we receive, our toy stock has been depleted. We are having to turn away requests for toys for children in vulnerable families at the moment, until donations of toys are received. So please, if you are having a clear-out this summer, bring your toys to us! The kind of toys that we need are ones that stimulate a child and encourage development. Usually they do not want soft toys, as the children already have soft toys. We only want good quality toys that are clean, without parts missing and in good working order.
You can bring donations to us at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, 104 Albert Road, Crosshill, Glasgow, G42 8DR. We are open on weekdays from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm. Please phone in advance (0141 433 2680) just to check that we are around.
Many thanks in advance for your help. God bless.

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’)
