IT’S a new beginning for Carluke-based charity New Beginnings as it gets set to launch its annual Christmas Appeal.
The charity, which began life seven years ago, played a key role in establishing Clydesdale Food Bank.
However, with the Food Bank now a “success” in its own right, the New Beginnings team, led by Mary McLellan, are able to focus on its original work of helping homeless people get back on their feet with home starter packs and furniture and providing toys for youngsters at Christmas.
If any member of the public or a local business would like to donate toys to this year’s Christmas Appeal or would like more information call New Beginnings on 07554 736015 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
