Blythswood Care – Auction

Elma Mackay writes: On 11th September at the Drumossie Hotel, Blythswood are hosting an auction to raise funds to extend our after school programme, Talita Kum in Romania which supports young people from some of the poorest and more vulnerable households in and around Jimbolia.

We are looking for goods – any unwanted gifts or home-made items.

We are also looking for services – do you provide a service that you could auction an hour or your time for? Such as hairdressing, gardening or painting?

Do you have a holiday home you could donate some time at?

These are just some ideas as to how you can support our auction this year. Please give in touch if you can help.

We would also love to see you at the auction. Tickets are £10 and available from here
.
In 2021, we celebrate Talita Kum’s 20th anniversary, and as we give thanks for the lives that have been changed through this work over the past two decades, we are looking to the future as plans are well underway to extend the programme to include young people aged 15 – 19.

The focus for the older teenagers will be on vocational training, such as photography courses, and independent living with the aim of developing skills in the young people, equipping them for life beyond school education, whilst discouraging early marriage and parenthood and giving them a brighter future.

Please get in touch with myself on 07876 831175, if you have any queries or if you can help with ideas and items for auction lots.
Many thanks,
Elma
