Poppy Scotland Appeal 2020

October 27, 2020

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, Poppy Scotland have made some changes to the way they are fundraising this year while still doing their best to ensure that we are all able to wear remembrance poppies. Therefore, for the first time, all donations in Torrance will be cashless.  A Torrance Poppy Appeal JustGiving page has been set up and can be accessed through the following link: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ao-torrance

We would like to get this out to as many people as possible in the village so if you use any of the village social media sites, I would appreciate it if you would post the details or just share with friends and family.  Poppies will be available in the shops and can be collected there.  This year the boxes will have QR and NFC code stickers on them, so as an alternative to JustGiving, anyone wishing to, can donate through their smartphone by scanning the code and following the instructions.

While I completely understand that this is not ideal for a lot of the community, it’s really the only way we can continue with a village collection this year in a safe and manageable way. Thank you, Dorothy McCarthy.

JTS Fair and Fine Food – Help our Producers fight Covid-19

June 9, 2020

Eswatini and KASFA have now each received their first payments from donations provided by JTS supporters through the Total Giving Page.

A spokeswoman and a female farmer from KASFA have asked us to “extend our warm appreciation to JTS and its partners for supporting KASFA with funds to help us purchase Personal Protective Equipment.  The equipment will be given to four rural health centres near where the farmers live.  This support signifies the love and care you have for our farmers.”

Eswatini have sent this message: “We would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for the compassion shown and of taking the initiative of assisting the producers during these uncertain times.”

If you are able, please continue to support the small holder farmers by donating to

Together, we can help the most vulnerable people fight this global pandemic. Let’s give them a chance.

East Dunbartonshire Foodbank

Ann Carson, the Foodbank Coordinator, would like to thank the congregation for their support to the Foodbank over the last year. Your donation of 267.15kg of food was especially helpful over the Christmas period.
Cinderella Pantomime – Also, a big thank you to the youngsters of Torrance Church for their very generous donation of over £3000 from the sale of tickets from the pantomime. We really enjoyed the night, the young folk were very professional, and we look forward to the next one!

Community Ceilidh – Thank You!

We raised over £700 for Torrance Primary PTA who are fundraising for new interactive whiteboards for the school. If anyone still wishes to contribute to the fundraising before we hand over the funds to the PTA, please place any donations in an envelope marked PTA in the plate on  Sunday morning. Thanks to all who contributed food, baking, photographs, help on the night, and to Foy ceilidh band for providing the music.
