STV Childrens Appeal Video

The STV Childrens Appeal were kind enough to share video footage of a story regarding a family that was recently helped by our own charity "Children In Poverty Inverclyde"
It's a touching video, showing how our donors and patrons, really do make positive changes to children and families in real life.

This heartwarming footage brings to life the actual outcomes of our continual strife to alleviate poverty and its effects on our children here in Inverclyde.

Again, we thank everyone, who have in any small way contributed to this great cause, and giving our local children, much needed, special happy memories, in their young lives.

You can view the video by clicking on the image below. Thanks again.



You can Donate via ourJustGiving account, which is a seamless easy and secure way to help the charity. Any amount is most welcome, and as you can see from the video, it does bring about real changes to families, who could be helped by our cause. Just click on the JustGiving logo below to donate and you will be taken to the secure JustGiving website.
