Welcome to Cupar Old Parish Church

Bags of kindness (www.bagsofkindness.co.uk)

During Lent Pitstop House Group are focusing not only on ‘giving up’ but ‘taking up’ something this year. We have looked at how we can help others, when we ourselves are so fortunate. The above charity is based in Cupar, but reaches out to many other areas to help in basic ways those who are homeless.
They give handbags (no smaller than 30 x 30cm) filled with toiletries and some added items. If you could contribute in any way they would be most grateful. You do not need to collect all the items!

Drop off points are Wee Kingdom and Stephen Gethin’s office in Cupar.
