We’ll never forget the support shown to us from our wonderful Renfrewshire community.
As such, we always make a donation to a Renfrewshire charity of our choice.
We try to choose charities or not for profits that are smaller (like us!) but the help they provide is immeasurable.
In the past these have included:
– comfort dolls for dementia
– the Renfrewshire food bank
– the Renfrewshire Christmas toy bank (x 2)
– Reaching Older Adults in Renfrewshire (ROAR)
– Finding your Feet Renfrewshire
We learned about the work being done by a local business owner last year and we’re delighted to be in the position to make a donation to help him this year.
Many of you will already know of Rekz Afzal from popping in to his shop, RSA Your Local Shop at 27b Moss Street, Paisley.
Since 2017, Rekz and a number of volunteers have operated the Community Fridge. This is a discreet service for anyone who finds themselves in a position of need.
Simply pop in to the shop and ask for food items from the fridge, to see you through the period of hardship. For free.
Rekz and the volunteers have helped thousands of Buddies throughout the years, gaining several awards and recognition along the way.
A true act of kindness that is also assisted by local people and businesses. It felt fitting to pick the Community Fridge this year, as now more than ever we’ve needed each others support and understanding.
And with that, we’d like to thank each of our clients who’ve stuck with us during the hardest of times. Without you, there would be no donations and no C Allan & Son. We hope that this festive season you’re safe, healthy and happy.
With sincerest regards,Chris & Michelle
