Ukrainian School Backpack Appeal

Jan McColl, Fife  Coordinator for Re-Act Scotland, (Refugee Action Scotland) collected the donations which CKS had gathered over the past few weeks.  She was delighted with the response and gave a huge thank you to everyone who had been so generous.  Her car was jam packed by the time she set off.  
Backpacks will be filled for both primary and secondary children, some who are now living in Fife and others further afield in Scotland. 
Over 6000 Ukrainians have arrived in Scotland since April and there are on average two families arriving every day.  Many will stay in the bigger cities on ships moored off Leith and on the Clyde. Fife has taken in a large number of families and Fife Council has set up a support network for them. Most come through sponsorship programmes and some people have self-financed their travel and accommodation.  Everyone is very grateful to have been welcomed into a safe haven.
Jan is retiring at the end of the year but we will be contacted if and when there is a new emergency appeal.  We would like to thank her for her inspiring and amazing work over the years both in this country and overseas.
Thank you again for your very kind support.

Coffee and Tea after Church - Ceres: VOLUNTEERS PLEASE 

On Sunday we enjoyed refreshments after the service thanks to Anne & David Hughes Hallett and now we need more volunteers.
We are in Ceres every three weeks so if we have even just two teams of two people you’re only on duty every six weeks. It’s a lovely time after church to meet and chat.

Please contact either Ella Brown or Anne Hughes Hallett for more information.

THANK YOU!

 

Ukraine Appeal  - Local Response      

A huge thank you to everyone who donated items for the Ukrainian appeal earlier in the year.  Our Church worked with Re-Act Scotland – Refugee Action Scotland - to collect donations for the Ukrainian refugee crisis and continues to do so.
