Christmas Appeal

Dear Supporter,

It has been a difficult year for many people and certainly for our valued Service Users.

We opened our doors again on 1st July and while we cannot provide all of our normal services, we can give a healthy breakfast and lunch to our visitors.

In a new partnership with Social Bite we are now providing an evening meal.

Although Christmas Day will again be different this year, we shall continue to share festive cheer by delivering Christmas dinner and a gift for up to 75 individuals.

Often, this gift is the only one which our Service User will receive on Christmas day or indeed, all year.

In order to make things as easy as possible in these challenging times, we are asking for a financial donation to fund the cost of our Christmas activities. Be assured that we shall provide both the meal and a gift to everyone who arrives on Christmas day.

With thanks to our sponsors who will donate some food items, a gift of £7 will cover the cost of a meal. We generally spend up to £10 on a Christmas gift.

Any contribution is gratefully received and you can donate in the usual way:

  1. Website: www.lhm-glasgow.org.uk
  2. Direct transfer: 82-64-31  30060385
  3. Call LHM on 0141 552 0285 and donate by card.

Finally, as the year draws to a close it is our prayer that all our supporters, staff, volunteers and those affected by homelessness may know peace, comfort, love and the assurance of God’s blessings.

Thank you for the great support you give throughout the year.

The following appeal is from Jim Purvis 

Dear Friends,

Williamwood Parish Church has been supporting Lodging House Mission for some time, providing volunteers to prepare and serve meals for their clients, but Covid19 has put a halt to this operation for the time being. Members of the congregation have been donating toiletries and food supplies, which I have delivered to LHM where they have been gratefully received. In the past few months donations have dwindled substantially and I am appealing for more people to support this scheme.  Here is the list of suggested items

Donations can be left at the church any Sunday morning, or I can collect them from you if you ‘phone me on 0141 620 3529.

Thank you all, Jim Purvis.

Toiletries Food
Shaving foam
Face cloths
Men’s deodorant
Disposable face masks
Tinned meat
Tinned meals (example: macaroni/cheese, Irish stew, minced beef & onions, etc.)
Jars of pasta sauce (BUT NOT PASTA)
Tinned potatoes or packets of Smash
Sugar (0.5 kg packs if possible)
Tinned fruit
‘kettle foods’ such as cup-a-soups, pot-noodles, etc.)
