Strathblane Parish Church, near where I live, is very supportive of our charity and the work Levison is doing in Malawi. It’s where my mum, Christine, is an elder and where we had the fundraiser/exhibition for her paintings and cards in October, raising money for an extension to the chicken house.
Strathblane Parish Church also donated money to buy Levison’s motorbike a couple of years ago which made a huge difference to the amount of people he can see/things he can do each day. We were all very thankful to them for this generous donation. The guild had kindly donated money to provide food for the children’s Christmas Party in December. Various members of the congregation have supported our charity in different ways.
I am thankful to be invited to contribute articles to their church magazine. Here is my latest article as a photo and I’ve attached a link to the whole magazine, with my article on page 10. https://online.flippingbook.com/view/340778991/ . Also, my mum, as well as being a talented painter, writes poetry. One of her poems is on page 11 of the magazine if anyone was interested in reading it. My mum is also a trustee of Changing Lives Malawi and gives generously of her time and talents. On the back page is a photo of my parents at a recent event at Strathblane Kirkrooms.
Also, I wanted to share with you a photo of a donation of soap I received at the weekend. A friend used to make soap and sell it at fetes and markets and had some left over. She donated it all to us to send to the children in Malawi. It smells absolutely lovely and I am sure the children who receive a gift of a bar of soap will be delighted. If anyone else wants to contribute a few bars of ordinary soap each time they are shopping then this would be very much appreciated. Providing soap for up to 800 children and young people is not an easy task.
Thanks for reading and thanks for your continued support, Sarah x
