Eilean Siar Foodbank Special Collection.
A special collection will be taken at the close of all services today for the Eilean Siar Foodbank.

According to the Poverty Action Group of the Community Planning Partnership, the number of families known to be living in poverty in the Western Isles has increased since the beginning of the pandemic. Depending on the number living in households, children, single pensioners, and those living in remote island communities are most likely to be adversely affected by the surging costs of food, fuel, clothing, and several other factors.

Our congregation’s support of the Eilean Siar Foodbank will be greatly appreciated.
