GWA Community Support – Winter 2021
Since our last newsletter, we have been pleased to donate to the following local causes though our Staff Community Support Initiative: Glendale Curling Club was nominated by Lindsay Dalgliesh and Steven Burns put forward Duns Football Club.
Recently, we have been participating in local yuletide activities. Once again, we are delighted to sponsor the Berwick Christmas Loyalty Scheme. Running for the 3rd consecutive year, this campaign is organised by the Berwick Chamber of Trade and provides an incentive to the local community to support more than 100 businesses based in and around Berwick.
We are also pleased to contribute to the Scremerston Community Christmas appeal. This community initiative provides the village’s festive lights and subsidises a Christmas lunch for senior citizens.
GWA is also one of 24 local organisations taking part in the 2021 Berwick Advent windows. From 1 December until Christmas Eve a new window will be unveiled every day, each one reflecting this year’s theme which is ‘A Christmas Journey’. At the time of writing, those responsible for our window are giving nothing away. However, all will be revealed on 10 December!
Finally, we are delighted to be able to support the Mission Christmas Cash for Kids campaign once more. Each of our three offices in Haddington, Bournmoor and Berwick are donation points where members of the public can drop new, unwrapped Christmas gifts. These will then be distributed by the Cash for Kids team to disadvantaged children in the local areas.
