Girls’ Brigade Get Moving – 14 Day Challenge

February 7, 2021

As the Emma Cameron Foundation is a special charity to Torrance Girls’ Brigade, we do like to raise funds for the ECF each year and give the display collection.

Recognising the benefits of exercise especially in lockdown, we have set the girls and leaders a challenge to be active for 14 days and their parents are welcome to donate to the ECF in recognition of this via the JustGiving page below.

Being active can be anything which gets us moving like a cycle, walk or indoor exercise class.

Anyone is very welcome to join us in this challenge, either with the 14 day activity or you could give to the ECF in recognition of the girls efforts! Many thanks, the GB leaders. https://www.justgiving.com/emmacameronfoundation

Fish ‘n Chips in February

February 7, 2021

We are in the final month of our fish and chip deliveries and while the weather has been wild this week a little lightness is creeping in to the evening sky, Spring is on its way.

We continue to be amazed by the joy a simple fish supper brings and by your generosity in supporting this wee outreach activity. God has done wonderful things with your donations of a wee bit of fish and a couple of tatties.

A big thank you too to our deliverers, they turn out in all weathers and hurry hot suppers right across our village. A superb team.

We have enough money now to see us to the end of the month so don’t need any more donations but if you have been blessed by giving the gift of food, the food banks in Springburn and Kirkintilloch still need support.

Thanks again to all, we’ll let you know our grand total of suppers delivered at the end of the month.
