Your Community Council achieved the objective of delivering 100 Santa Sacks on 23rd December to mainly elderly residents of Woodside. The sacks containing groceries and festive goodies were supplied to homes identified by Queens Cross and Glasgow West Housing Associations as well as by local businesses and residents.
Over £400 was donated in cash and kind to fund this project from Queens Cross H.A., Glasgow West H.A., CCG (Scotland) Ltd., Tunnocks of Uddingston, patrons of Wintersgills Bar, and of course Woodside Community Council. We would also like to thank the students and staff of GES, Glasgow University for their incredibly generous food donations and appreciation of the enthusiasm and support of our Santa Sacks project by the Earth Science students.
We are grateful to all who donated funds and to those who gave their time during the busy festive season to organize collection and delivery of the sacks.
