Our thanks goes out again to SunnySid3-Up Charity, the fundraisers in Scotland and throughout the world who have made another generous donation to our relief work here in Sri Lanka following the floods and landslides in the local area. Many people here still remain homeless and need our support to rebuild their lives. We have received funds that have enabled us to buy 800 items of clothing, bed sheets, medicine, bread and bananas for those in most need. Without this emergency donation many people would have no where else to go for immediate support. I will ensure that we will deliver the emergency supplies to those who suffered because of this tragedy. Our sincere appreciation goes out to everyone who has enabled us to continue with the relief effort. Our thankfulness is thankful to you all
Due to the kindness and generosity of fundraisers with Sunny-Sid3Up in Scotland 150 rice packs, medicine and clothing will be sent to those families most in need following the recent floods and mudslides here in Sri Lanka. The monsoon rains have brought tragedy to many people in local areas who desperately need our help. I will ensure that all the aid will make it to families as soon as possible. Thank you all again for your charity donation
Without the help of Indika who lives in Welipenna, Sri-Lanka we would not be able to do the projects we do, as some of you may know Indika was a friend of Chris’s and Sri- Lanka was a big part of Chris’s life, through Indika Chris’s work will carry on and the people who need it most will be supported by Sunny-sid3up. I have had the pleasure of meeting Indika during my visits to Sri-Lanka and you could not find a more genuine person who wants to help the poor people of his country, he is a selfless person who would always put others before himself.
I would just like to thank him for everything he has done for Sunny-sid3up
The latest SunnySid3-Up charity project is with Mr Martin. Mr Martin is 70 years old and lives alone. He is in need of support from the charity as he is vulnerable. He has a learning disability and he is unable to use his right hand. Last Monday I started work on an out-house toilet. The work is almost finished and a running water pipe will be connected soon from a nearby well. Work within his house includes plastering and levelling the floor. His windows need to be secured with an iron grill so that intruders will now be able to enter his home. I will also clean the house thoroughly and help with the gardening around the outside of the house. Mr Martin appreciates all the work that the charity has done so far and has promised for the near future. He will be able to live a much more comfortable and rewarding life. Thank you to all the people who support our charity work and those who have helped with fun raising in Scotland. We look forward to working with more people in the future who can lead happier lives due to our work. Thank you

What do they do……………………………………
Loaves and Fishes is a registered Scottish charity established for more than 20 years
We started out as a soup kitchen, feeding homeless people from the back of a van. We moved indoors for the first time in 2003, where we were able to provide greater comfort, warmth and a less hostile atmosphere for the people we help. Today we’re based at Renfield St Stephen’s Church Centre in Glasgow.
Would just like to say a massive THANK YOU To Gala Bingo (Clydebank) for raising over £500 to help feed the homeless, the money raised will go a long way to feed many homeless people on the streets of Glasgow.
