• Calton Community Council – working with The Lodging House Mission

    15621989_1188816671172138_5166351306619049030_nThe Calton Communitty Council was impressed by the Lodging House’s  winter programme and wanted to help this local charity.

    During December 2016 the Calton Community Council donated:

    • 240 pairs of men’s underwear (thanks to a Spirit of Calton Foudation Grant)
    • 150 pairs of heavy winter socks (thanks to the staff at Morrison’s Gallowgate)
    • 80 thermal hats, scarves and gloves (thanks to staff at HM Revenue & Customs, Cotton House, Glasgow)
    • 100 selection boxes and boxes of sweets (thanks to staff at HM Revenue& Customs, Cotton House, Glasgow)
    • and the biggest and heaviest Clootie Dumpling we ever saw – and that went down a treat on christmas day. Seen here being presented by Donna McKeeman and her daughter Holly as it needed two to lift it !  A big thanks to Marlene in HMRC for making it.

    Our sincere thanks to all who helped make this possible.
