Thank you for a beautiful donation

August 23, 2017

We recently received a lovely layette from the Our Lady, Mother and Queen Rosary Group.

As you can see from the pictures it was all beautifully wrapped up and I promise when I finished taking the pictures I reassembled it back to its former glory. I just wanted to share the beautiful contents and all the love and care which had gone into producing such a beautiful gift.

Thank you to all involved.

How your donations and support have helped

July 19, 2017

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.

Toys Needed!

July 5, 2017

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.

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:

Baby baths

Cotton wool

Ikea bags – the big blue ones (we use these to package clothing that we give out)

Prams

Moses baskets

Baby boy outfits for aged 0-3 months (please only donate clean laundered clothing and clearly label the bag ‘BOY 0-3 MONTHS’)

Trinity High’s Charity Presentation

February 28, 2017

Last week, Jess (postulant) attended a charity presentation afternoon at Trinity High School in Renfrew. She was presented with a generous cheque for £600 for the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative and some bags of donations of baby clothing. We are very grateful for their support. The pupils had made great efforts doing many activities over the year to fundraise for charities and representatives from many different local charities were presented with cheques to help their charity’s work. It was inspiring to hear the commitment and enthusiasm of the pupils in fundraising and volunteering to support charities. Also wonderful to hear about the great work that other charities are doing locally.
