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.

  • 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.
