Bishop Kevin's Lent Appeal for Aberlour

Fundraising for Aberlour – Scotland’s children’s charity
Donations cannot currently be made to this page
We support children and young people to give them the chance to flourish


This year my Lent Appeal is for the outstanding work undertaken by the Aberlour Child Care Trust, a charity that has longstanding links with our Scottish Episcopal Church, a charity dear to my heart, and a charity that is there for Scotland's hidden children, whose considerable difficulties have been hugely exacerbated over the last year of pandemic.

The list of work done by Aberlour is extensive and enormous, encompassing early years to young adulthood, and including residential and fostering services, addiction recovery programmes, support for early years children and for families affected by child disability, early intervention programmes, urgent assistance funds, self-directed support and school support.  

More detail is available on Aberlour’s websiteand I would urge all members and friends of our churches in the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway to contribute to our appeal through this JustGiving page, whence your contributions will be channelled directly to Aberlour.

Please feel free to share this page far beyond our own churches and members: last year our Bishop’s Lent Appeal raised over £10,000, so we hope to exceed that amount in what has been a very challenging period for everyone. And, in Aberlour’s case, “because every child deserves the chance to thrive…”

If you are contributing from or on behalf of one of our churches, it would be helpful if you add the name and town of your church in the Comments section, even if you would prefer your own name to remain anonymous. And, if you are able, please allow Gift Aid to be claimed on your donation. But, more important than anything else, please give generously to this tremendously worthwhile cause.


About the charity

1 in 4 children are living in poverty in Scotland. That isn’t right. Not all children are born with an equal chance. We know that by working together we will beat poverty and discrimination. With your help, we will reach more children and their families earlier, before it’s too late.
