St Andrews and St Brides - WEE BOX fundraising - Lent 2021

SCIAF and the Catholic Church across Scotland have been so proud of how supporters have responded to the WEE BOX appeal throughout lockdown. You have truly stood in solidarity with our brothers and sisters living in poverty. 

These times have not been easy – especially when some school pupils didn’t even return to school until after Easter. Despite not being together in person, you’ve taken part in impressive virtual walks and online fundraising. This has been the best year yet for JustGiving support!

Praise for 'passing the WEE BOX'

Thank you!

We’ve been blown away with all the fantastic work! This is just a flavour of what schools and supporters across Scotland are doing to put ‘loving your neighbour’ into practice, and we know many more thoughtful individuals have fundraised for our appeal. We’re so grateful for everyone’s support; we couldn’t help communities living in poverty without you. 

On behalf of all those who will benefit from your prayers and your fundraising, we want to thank you so much. 

All donations received by 11th May were doubled by UK government - thank you!
