WACH  Committee 

The WATCH Committee (Working All Together Caring & Helping through the Cross) was set up by the Kirk Session in 1991 with the specific remit to support and raise awareness of local charities. Since then the committee has raised funds for many local causes including

 

Capability Scotland                                Richmond’s Hope
Cystic Fibrosis                                        Disability Snowsport UK
Down’s Syndrome                                  The Yard Adventure Centre
Motor Neurone Disease                          Erskine Edinburgh Home
Parkinson’s Disease                               Teenage Cancer Trust

Rock Trust                                               Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
Fresh Start

 

The charity chosen by the WATCH Committee in 2017 is the Clowndoctors project which is part of the Hearts and Minds charity (SC027040). We will fully fund the specialised training of two Clowndoctors at a cost of £4,000 and any additional funds raised will go to the church project Building for the future, details of which will be announced in August.

During the latter half of 2017 the Committee will organise the summer coin collection, the Craft Coffee Morning and the Christmas Fair inviting the Congregation, the Blackhall community and local businesses to support our program.

At the end of last year’s fundraising, in front of the Congregation, a cheque for £10,000 was handed over to Carol Jones, Scottish Organiser for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
