We at Glasgow City Mission could not do our work without partnerships throughout the city. We work with many partners for the benefit of our guests and at the beginning of this week; there was a great example of this.

We coordinated a Pop Up Event where international guests could come along and select clothes, nappies, food and other items. This practical event was organised in conjunction with Refuweegee and we want to thank Selina and Hannah for partnering with us to make the day such a success. This was shown by the feedback from one of our guests: “Thank you everyone who put a smile on our faces, GCM and every organisation that put this together God bless you all.”

The event featured Helen and Susan from our city centre project and Margaret and James from our Child and Family Centre. We must also thank Audrey from the Glasgow SE Foodbank for their support of the event.

Other quotes from the day were:

“Words cannot perfectly convey my deepest appreciation to the overall team for the items l got. May your organisation continue to wax stronger and progress steadily.  Thanks a lot.”

“Wow wow wow, thank you sooooo much the whole Glasgow City Mission. The nappies, wipes, food, toys, cloths very good and saved me loads of money.”

“Can’t wait for the next one😁.”

At this time when there are many challenges and pressures on our international guests we will continue to love and support all those who come to our city.
