Wee Boxes available from the Church House at any time. As the government instructions are still stay at home then only if out for a walk or for some other legitimate purpose. The Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF) has announced that supporters of the much-loved WEE BOX, BIG CHANGE Appeal, will soon be able to get their hands on the WEE BOX. For more than two decades, the initiative has been a fixture in many households throughout Scotland.
Every year, generous Scots give up a treat for Lent and place the money they would save into the WEE BOX. Money raised from this appeal helps to provide the crucial schooling, healthcare, food, sanitation, and support to earn a living that families need to work themselves out of poverty.
The Scottish aid charity has developed comprehensive online resources, jam packed with exciting activities for all ages to ensure people are able to continue to support the appeal.
Penelope Blackwell, Director of Public Engagement said: “The money raised from Lent appeals provides a lifeline to thousands of families who are less fortunate and gives them the hope and support they need to build better futures. We cannot do any of this without the help of our supporters and I would like to thank each and every one of you.”
