September 2020
Dear Ali,

CrossReach couldn't do what we do without your support.
Here's some information about what's going on in CrossReach to keep you up to date with what's happening, and how you can get involved.

 
A personal invitation to you
Dear Ali,
We invite you to a virtual "meet the service" event on
Wednesday, September 30th at 10.30 a.m.
when we are hosting a live webinar from CrossReach's Morven Day Service in Kilmarnock.

Morven provides community support for people living with mental health issues.
During the Coffee @Morven event, you will have a chance to:
learn more about the service,
have a tour of the facility,
take part in a ten minute craft class,
hear how Morven has changed and adapted during Covid-19
and have your questions answered by Allan Marshall, Deputy Manager of Morven.
You will also meet and hear from some of our service users and there may be a little music on the day too. The whole thing should last just over an hour.


You can do all this from the comfort of your own PC, laptop, tablet or phone whilst enjoying a cup of your favourite coffee (or tea).

Book your place HERE for what promises to be a fun and engaging event.

Hello again, Hello
During the Covid Lock-down, it was especially difficult for residents of our Care Homes and their families to stay in touch.
Thanks to the amazing response of our supporters to the Covid-19 Emergency Appeal, CrossReach were able to equip many of our Care Homes with electronic tablets. This means families can stay in touch with each other.
The Scottish Social Service Council picked up on one of the videos of what this meant to families. 
Watch the video HERE to see Mr Tonner from St Margarets Care Home in Polmont sing to his daughter online when visits to Care Homes were not possible.

Warning: it's quite a tear jerker!

 
Christmas Card and Calendar Collection 2020
A Christmas card is a perfect way to stay in touch, possibly with people you haven’t seen face to face for a while due to Covid-19 restrictions. It’s a lovely way to let them know you are thinking of them.

By buying your Cards and Calendars from CrossReach, you are receiving beautiful, high quality cards at reasonable prices to bless family and friends with, and you are being part of the great mission of CrossReach to “seek to support people to achieve the highest quality of life which they are capable of achieving at any given time.” This is because all the profits CrossReach receive from the sale of Cards and Calendars from this Catalogue goes to help CrossReach's caring work across Scotland.

To make sure you don't miss out on these wonderful Christmas Cards or Calendars, email us at webshop@crossreach.org.uk or call us on 0131 454 4374 to get your copy of the Christmas Card and Calendar Catalogue 2020.
