Handbell Ringers – Fundraising Concert

On 16th November, the Jordanhill Handbell Ringers very kindly put on a fundraising concert for us in St Columba’s Episcopal Church.

 

The Jordanhill Parish Church Handbell Ringers played a range of music from specially written pieces for handbells to Christmas carols and ending with a handbell setting of “Eternal Father strong to save”.Everyone really enjoyed it which was evident by the comments received afterwards and the emails sent in to the mission.
The concert raised just over £550 which is equivalent to 1½ days running costs which we are really incredibly thrilled about.
The generosity of the The Jordanhill Parish Church Handbell ringers and the Church group in not taking a fee greatly assists the work of the Mission here in Scotland and is really appreciated by the Trustees and Chaplain and, through the funds raised, the seafarers visiting our Scottish ports.

R U 1 in a 1000 Campaign Launch

At this year’s Annual Meeting, we are launching our latest fundraising campaign – “R U 1 in a 1000?”.

We rely almost entirely on individual donations and periodic grants to carry out our support to our seafarers, but the reliance on this means it has been very difficult to plan our work, from year to year. This is why we are launching the “R U 1 in a 1000?” campaign.

We are looking to build up 1,000 supporters, pledging just £10 per month. If we can achieve that target, the future of our work will be both secure and sustainable for years to come.

We know that many people have limited incomes but, next time you buy a banana from a supermarket, or a shirt from a clothes shop, pause and think of the crewmen and women who helped to bring them across the seas to our shores.
