Harvest Thanksgiving

Throughout the month of October we will celebrate Harvest, and the children of the Sunday School in Hamilton West, will lead a collection for two deserving charities during each Sunday Service.

This year the Social Responsibility Team at Hamilton West Parish has chosen :

Les Hoey MBE Dream Maker Foundation.

The good work of this group has been carried out throughout Scotland since 1992; making dreams come true for some very special children with life-threatening illnesses.  In 2014 it became a registered charity to allow it to help a larger number of children.  The charity helps children (and their siblings) going through treatments for serious illnesses by giving them wonderful experiences which will make their lives more bearable during this hard time.

Alzheimer Scotland (Action on Dementia)

This charity provides a wide range of specialist services for people with dementia and their carers.  They offer personalised support services, community activities, information and advice at every stage of the dementia “journey”.
