Yes, we can be of help

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Yes Ruther­glen have this week sent care parcels to the Greek char­ity Des­mos.

The much-needed aid will be dis­trib­uted to fam­i­lies in need in Greece. The parcels also con­tained letters writ­ten in English and Greek.

Gil­lian Mair of Yes Ruther­glen said:“With the debt cri­sis con­tin­u­ing, peo­ple in Greece are fac­ing mass un­em­ploy­ment and many are still liv­ing well be­low the poverty line.

“Many of us have been sup­port­ing our lo­cal food bank in re­cent weeks and this scheme gives us the chance to help oth­ers in the same way.

“It is also an op­por­tu­nity to send mes­sages of sup­port from Scot­land to Greece,”she said.

The courier com­pany ParcelBro­ker are cur­rently of­fer­ing to send care pack­ages to the char­ity free of charge. De­tails are avail­able from; https://www. parcelbro­­greece
