IMPACT EAST KILBRIDE

2 days of service creates new friendships.

Volunteers from East Kilbride church joined with others to form 'Impact East Kilbride' on Monday 18 - Tuesday 19 July. Pastor Rory Mendez had arranged for volunteers to come from churches throughout the UK. Twelve volunteers worked tirelessly in the warm July sun to clear weeds from the long path surrounding the sheltered housing complex of Canberra House. after

Then in the seated area the team planted heathers and other plants. Beavon Sanderson from Glasgow trimmed the trees to allow more light in to stop the moss forming on the lawn.

Unlike 2015 when the team had to travel to have lunch elsewhere, the residents gave them permission to use the kitchen and dining area and helped by supplying extra pots.

hard-at-workDuring the 2 days of work many residents had brief chats with the volunteers and all were very grateful that they were working there. Afterwards some of the residents asked the team for prayers and they enjoyed sitting out in their garden. They also asked for group photos to be taken and the team was presented with a 'Thank you' card and a generous and unexpected donation.
