The Hunter Foundation will then donate 50% on top of every penny raised!

Glasgow Spirit of Christmas 2020 Appeal

We would like to thank everyone who has donated to this years Spirit of Christmas appeal. As we were unable to purchase and deliver the gifts this year, the volunteers at the Glasgow Spirit of Christmas appeal very kindly purchased the gifts on our behalf and this photo is just some of the gift bags that we have funded which were collected by Barnardo's Easterhouse yesterday.

Thanks to the generosity of the House, its Crafts, its members and its staff we made two donations totalling £2,420.00 meaning that at least 80 young people aged 13- 17 will wake up on Christmas morning with Christmas presents.

 

This week we were also delighted to make an additional donation of £5,000.00 which has come from the Deacon Conveners Charitable fund and which will be spent on gift vouchers, again to be given to young people aged 13-17

We cannot thank everyone enough for the support you have shown this year and the difference you have helped make to a young person this Christmas 🎄 🎄

Trades House of Glasgow Deacon Conveners Charity Appeal

‘’It is customary for the Deacon Convener to promote a charitable objective whilst in office. We know that child poverty, much as a result of Covid 19, continues to be a major issue in the Glasgow region and I would like our focus this year to be on helping children and young people during these very difficult times.’’

To launch my Charitable appeal, we have designed an item which will be part of everyone’s lives (and wardrobes!) for some time to come – a very stylish face mask made from our own Trades House Tartan

I am indebted to Ex Deacon Colin Brown and his company Ingles Buchan, for their generosity and expertise in the design quality and professional construction of these fabulous masks.

These washable, fully lined and double layer masks come in two styles with over the ear adjustable elastic fastenings.

Style 1 –

The Pleated Surgical Design Mask

 

 

 

 

 

Style 2 - The Standard Face Mask

 

 

 

 

 

Priced very reasonable at £7.50 (inc postage), our masks are a real talking point and cover a range of possibilities including:

  • Personal Stylish Wear
  • Christmas Gifts for the all the family
  • Master Court and Craft members
  • Gifts to beneficiaries and pensioners
  • The Ultimate stocking filler

*Please note our masks are not PPE but fully comply with the wearing of face masks in designated areas and can be hand or machine washed (max 30 degrees)*

Disposable inserts may be used inside these masks
