We had a very successful outreach from 6.30pm-8.30pm Weds 30th.
Given out were around 100 goodie bags with flyers for our Fri 1st Jan New Years special. The goodie bags had some treats - but some contained left over gift cards for Greggs, from the Xmas Outreach. Attendees were delighted to do the lucky dip and get goodies and gift cards, plus learn about the new times and opening for Friday. Hot food, hot drinks, toiletries, pet food (thanks Mrs Murrays), sanitary products, clothing and sleeping bags, Greggs gift cards in the goodie bag lucky dip. As well as a lot of kindness from all the amazing volunteers.
Attending were the incredible Aberdeen Muslims with Food. Had a lovely chat with Sumon, who has helped us so much this year. He wished everyone well and thanked us for what we do, but we ALL thank him, and everyone a part of Aberdeen Muslims who have gone out of their way to help us. A special treat was an opportunity to chat with the incredible Iman of Aberdeen Mosque, kindness & caring is in every part of this mans soul. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 - a huge thanks again.
There was lovely soup from our very own dedicated Andrea, helped by Gary. Soup always goes down well, and really helps those in need. A huge thanks to those who have ordered soup bowls from the Amazon Wishlist - so we can do more. We would love to hand them out during the street welfare daily outreaches too. Thanks Andrea, Amazing!!
Santa popped past, and said hello too:
Santa, allegedly known as big T, was very happy with his coffee from La Lombardas.
La Lombardas will be back with some exciting meals for New Years Day. Please see their Xmas clip below, we can't wait to see them on Friday.
Many thanks to everyone involved. A special shout our to Marmaris - with their selection provided for those in need.
To Cfine for their continued support. Greggs as always, as well as our incredible local supermarkets as and when they can assist.
