Sponsored Walk for Welfare at New Lanark Fun Day
August 2014: The Scottish Welfare Committee has been invited to join South Lanarkshire branch to hold a sponsored walk and take part in their fun day at New Lanark on Sunday, 31 August 2014.
The participation in the South Lanarkshire day will enable us to raise vital funds for There for You, UNISON Welfare’s charity.
We are asking for help from branches for:
Donations towards the day – not in sponsoring rides, etc. as in previous years, but just direct donations for UNISON Welfare. As you know, demands on Welfare from our members is greater than ever – many of our members are living in poverty, due to low pay and need to access food banks just to get by.
Please send all cheques to: Diane Anderson, UNISON, 14 West Campbell Street, Glasgow, G2 6RX, made payable to UNISON Welfare
We will once again be holding a raffle and donations for raffle prizes would also be appreciated.
Publicise in your branch and encourage as many members and their families as possible to support the day. Arrange minibuses if needed to help members to get there.
