Last Christmas Glasgow Women’s Aid was overwhelmed by the wonderful donations of toys and gifts from McTear’s customers and staff. We know that many women and children in Glasgow had a happy and memorable Christmas thanks to these donations. We thank you for your generosity.
This November and December McTear’s is asking you to rediscover that Christmas spirit and donate a present to someone who would otherwise have little or nothing to open on Christmas morning. All donations go to Glasgow Women’s Aid, a city charity who support women, children and young people who have experienced abuse by offering practical help in housing, financial and legal issues and providing safe accommodation for women and their children. The GWA distribute the presents in time for Christmas morning.
The GWA has provided a list of suggestions, of things that they need this Christmas for their women and children. McTear’s is collecting all donations until Wednesday 14th December. Please bring your donation to McTear’s at any time - you will see the Christmas box! It’s really important that you bring your donation unwrapped to let the GWA gift it most appropriately. Thank you!
Suggested donations include:
Vouchers for cinema, clothes shops,
gaming and music stores, toys stores
and supermarkets. This will allow mums
to choose gifts for their children.
• Pyjamas for all ages and sizes, including
