Hampers for Christmas

Glendale Connect is asking for help in identifying people in our community who might benefit from receiving a hamper this Christmas. If you know anyone in Carham parish who is going to be on their own at Christmas, or is finding life difficult at the moment, or is isolated, and you think they would be cheered by receiving a hamper, please contact the Parish Clerk.
