Outreach

The school holidays can be an expensive time for families – not just for treats like ice cream and swimming, but feeding hungry children who receive school meals during term time.  Please spare a little something for the Foodbank with this in mind, and be assured that every single donation makes a difference, while regular donations are particularly appreciated.

Ø  Long life milk, teabags, sugar and biscuits are always needed.

Ø  Volunteers are needed to do deliveries.  These can be made any time on any day, but it is always advisable to ring Amna at the Foodbank to check that someone will be there when you arrive.  Her number is 07912 342283.

We have been supporting TBM (Taught by Mohammed) Foodbank since Rev. Mike Mair was Locum – over two and a half years at least.
   
BUILDING BRIDGES THROUGH MUSIC: An ensemble of exceptionally talented young Palestinian musicians will come together to play a concert in St Paul’s Cathedral in Dundee on Sunday 7th July at 7.30 pm. The programme will comprise Mozart and Mahler piano quartets, and Arabic folk music arranged by the ensemble; refreshments will be available at the interval.  Admission is free but donations will be invited for Palmusic UK, the charity that is supporting Omar, Tibah and Lourdina with scholarships to study at top British conservatoires (in Glasgow, Birmingham & Manchester).
