We need your help to make this of year better for people who are homeless or trapped in poverty in Glasgow. Could you hold a fundraiser to make a big impact? It could be a coffee morning in your house, a bake sale at work, a sponsored walk with some friends, or request to have an offering taken at your church services? Pick something that suits you - often the simplest ideas work best. And we're here to provide any help you may need, or supply you with leaflets or other materials - just contact us. Thank you.
