The Lighthouse Support Centre is now partnering with Kings Community Church to provide a food bank for the community of Tillydrone. As a result, food will be donated independently, so there will be no more need for gifts of food from ACF.  A grateful ‘thank you’ to all those who have given to the Lighthouse Food Bank over the years. You have been a blessing to many and a huge encouragement to the volunteers at Lighthouse.

Eleanor Forbes would like to pass on her thanks for the support given to her Ben Nevis fundraiser on behalf of Street Pastors. Almost £6,000 was raised.
