COVID-19: January 2021

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23

We continue to pray that our staff at home and abroad, and volunteers and supporters will be kept safe and well through this second wave of the pandemic. It is important to follow Government guidelines using PPE where appropriate and washing hands and maintaining social distancing measures.

Due to the further severe lockdown measures announced by the Government all of our shops (except for Stornoway), depots and offices in Scotland and Northern Ireland will remain closed until further notice.

Our foodbanks in Scotland will remain open, supplying emergency food to those in crisis.

Our Annual Shoe Box Appeal in 2020 was successful with 75,218 boxes delivered safely in December. Pray with us that the boxes will be a blessing to all who received them.

Please continue to pray with us for friends and colleagues at home and abroad who are unwell at this time.

We hugely appreciate your support as we plan to keep our projects and other activities operational within current restrictions. We will be pleased to receive your donations of clothing, bric-a-brac and other items as soon as our shops reopen.

We will give further updates as matters progress.

May we all know the Lord’s presence in these difficult days.
