This Christmas we are highlighting the incredible story of Florence who arrived in Glasgow with all her belongings in her handbag. As if this wasn’t enough, she was also pregnant.

Fortunately, when she got off the bus at Buchanan Street a kindly stranger suggested she should go to Glasgow City Mission. It has been our pleasure to journey with her and her baby through our three projects: City Centre Project; Child and Family Centre and Overnight Welcome Centre.

She spent her first night in Glasgow at our overnight shelter, she was then referred the next morning to our city centre project in Crimea Street. That was the start of her journey with us and she is now settled in Glasgow and a well-loved member of the community at our Child and Family Centre. With your support this Christmas we will be able to work with more people such as Florence.
