Along with the Mariners Home and Erskine Hospital we were the recipients of £1500 from the Lodge's Annual Charity grants locally. A wonderful donation and very gratefully received and we commend Lodge Greenock Kilwinning XII on their extremely valuable support and caring  to local charities.

The Health Visiting Dept at Port Glasgow Health Centre would like to thank you for the donation of baby and childrens clothes & accessories which have been distributed to families below the poverty line. These families have expressed such deep appreciation for these items which helps to make life a little easier for them. To see a childs face light up when getting something new is a sight to behold! Once again thank you.

Thank you for the kind donation of selection boxes for the prisoner’s children which were distributed over the festive period at HMP Greenock.

John McGovern of the Senit Foundation presents a cheque for £1000 to us which provided a trip to Santa's Grotto&Carnival at Cardwell GC for 80 local children where they met Santa and Olaf and had a great time on the fun rides and bouncy castle plus a goody bag from Cardwell GC. We applaud the Senit Foundation for their very generous donation and indeed commend them for their extensive and exemplary contribution to charitable organisations and deserving causes in Inverclyde'
Our charity received a donation of £313 from Louise Murphy of LM Fitness who organised sponsored events with her patrons. We are indebted to Louise for this wonderful donation and the generosity of LM Fitness patrons'
Jeanette Knox of Enterprise Childcare presents our charity with toys collected from various businesses at Pottery Street. A truly wonderful gesture by Jeanette in organising this collection which was appreciated by ourselves and those families in receipt of these gifts.

£500 from Lodge Greenock Kilwinning No.XII

We are presented with a cheque for £500 from Lodge Greenock Kilwinning No.XII after being selected by Provost Moran as the recipient of the Annual Provost charity nomination to the Lodge. We thank the Provost for selecting us as nominee and appreciate the generous donation from the Lodge and commend them on their continued great work for charities in Inverclyde.

The link between activities and purpose is simply that no child in our community must feel marginalised because of the impact of poverty. Children from poor families will, as a consequence of our organisation's purpose and activities, feel valued and be empowered to participate - on an equal footing - with their more affluent peers, in all opportunities available to Inverclyde's children. This website will help educate and promote Children in Poverty Inverclyde.
