There are three local charities who will benefit from the donations to Linlithgow’s Rotary Tree of Light in 2023. These are :-
River Kids is a West Lothian based children’s charity, founded in 2005, with the sole purpose of supporting disadvantaged children and their families by providing those children with opportunities to reach their full potential. They do this through educational, financial and emotional support. They provide children with volunteering and employment opportunities to ensure they have the best start in life; financial support (grants) to ensure they are not excluded from extra-curricular events; they deliver the West Lothian Toy Appeal; and they provide those who need it a safe place to come and get the support they may need.
Linlithgow & District Day Care Centre is a charity, managed by a voluntary committee, for frail elderly people living in Linlithgow, Bridgend, Philpstoun, and Winchburgh with varying degrees of dementia. They provide relief for the family or carer, as well as a meeting place for groups and individuals to preserve their health and wellbeing. They operate from the Linlithgow Partnership Centre.
Quiet Waters provides counselling and bereavement support services to help those in need find a constructive way forward with their problems. They provide over 1,000 hours of counselling each year – almost exclusively in face-to-face sessions. Other services include bereavement listening services and a partnership with HM Prison Stirling. They also provide training for their volunteers and external agencies, including local Churches.
By allowing us to claim Gift Aid on your donation, money refunded by HMRC will be distributed by the Benevolent Fund of the Rotary Club of Linlithgow Grange towards these good causes
