The real spirit of Christmas

It’s sad to imagine anyone being alone at Christmas but unfortunately that’s the reality for many of my constituents. So I was delighted when local woman Jodie Campbell launched a fundraising campaign to fund a Christmas Day lunch for people in the community who would either be alone or couldn’t afford to have a traditional Christmas dinner. Jodie has already raised over £2000, which will pay for a three course lunch for local people at Glasgow Airport Holiday Inn. And for those who were having difficulty in getting there, Renfrewshire Cab Company has stepped in to taxi free of charge almost 30 people to and from the hotel on Christmas Day. It’s not too late to make a donation to help Jodie reach her £3000 target. You can make a donation or contact Jodie to find out more on her fundraising page: https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/renfrewshirexmaslunch.
