St Peter’s – Shedding Light across the South Side!
Celine from The Yard, a playground for children with disabilities, came along to lead the count-down to switching on our 2016 lights. Then around 40 people moved into the church to sing carols. Mulled wine was served in the hall where lots of youngsters did craft activities with Gloria and Kristee. We don’t know exactly what the event raised yet but once the donations that were gift-aided have been processed, it should be around £300. Whatever we raise will be doubled by The Bank of Scotland through their matched funding scheme, because Katie Lockie, a Bank employee, helped at the event. Thanks to her, Liz Philp, Ann Anderson and the COG members who organised the event.
