Deacon Convener's Fundraising Events
Over the course of a year, the Deacon Convener undertakes a
number of events to raise funds for his nominated charities. This
year's DC, Keith Brown, chose Kinship Care and the Good
Morning Service. Kinship Care is a new Trades House charity
to provide support to children living with grandparents and
extended family. We aim to help give these children and young
people the same opportunities as their peers to develop confidence
and skills, enabling them to achieve their potential and lead
successful adult lives. We also want to help ease the strain
and financial burden on kinship carers.
The Good Morning Service is a Glasgow charity that
provides telephone befriending and alert calls to older people.
Keith's fundraising events included:
- A Business Dinner
- A charity Golf Day at Loch Lomond
- A Fashion Show
- A Summer Charity Ball
These have raised a substantial amount of money, for which the
Deacon Convener and the Trades House are extremely grateful.
