    Story

    Thank you for taking time to read this!

    You may have seen or heard in the news a local Glasgow family have been left with nothing in a recent house fire. Joel is only 11 and due to start high school on Wednesday and his mother has MS. Life as you can imagine is going to be so much more difficult for them now.

    The dream would be to rebuild their family home but If we can help to buy them clothes and basic living necessities its a small first step to help them when they leave hospital.

    Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

    Thanks again anything you can give is really appreciated!

    Other community members have a page and all funds raised will be given to Catherine.

    We have now reached our goal but hopefully we can smash this and double it!

    Thank you for all your generosity its really overwhelming!
