Broom Parish Church in Glasgow has been fundraising since the beginning of the year for the 'Toilet Twinning' project. This provides clean water, sanitation and hygiene education in some of the most deprived parts of the world. Members of all ages have been encouraged to deposit their small change (literally spending a penny!) in a special talking toilet bowl. With over £600 raised so far, Rev Jim Boag and his congregation have been able to twin their church loos with school toilet blocks in Chad and Uganda, and plan to twin with more.

Thanks to donations from all over Scotland and beyond, the 2014 Stamp Appeal was an enormous success, raising a record-breaking £4,627 - £555 more than the previous year's total!
The 2015/16 appeal will support the Church of Scotland HIV Programme, which helps partner church overseas and local organisations in Scotland as they engage with the realities of HIV and AIDS in families and communities.
Your donations of used stamps will help to:
Just donate your used postage stamps to the Appeal. All donations are welcome - no amount is too large or small, and stamp albums are also accepted. We're happy to accept your donations of stamps at the Presbytery Office.
