Testimonials

Richard Stewart Family Learning Centre

“The kindness and generosity of Spirit Aid has enabled our children to have fantastic outdoor gear to enjoy their outdoor learning experiences, allowed families to have a lovely surprise at Christmas of a food hamper and helped the Nursery Santa to bring amazing presents to the children. Their support throughout the year helps all our children but in the covid pandemic they have also had a huge impact in supporting our most vulnerable families.”

Jenny Winsley

St. Philip’s Day Services

“I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the staff and young people of St Philip’s School to extend our sincere thanks to you for the outstanding support you provided to many of our young people and their families throughout the national lockdown period.  The support you provided greatly helped many families across North and South Lanarkshire who experienced exceptionally challenging times and your support made a huge difference to them.  The young people and their families were immensely appreciative of your support and you certainly made a massive difference to their quality of life throughout this period.”

Julie Ross

John Paul Academy

“In John Paul Academy our staff work with some of the most disadvantaged young people in our city which places challenges on the ability of our school to achieve good outcomes. Our link with Spirit Aid has provided an essential lifeline for those unduly affected by poverty. Our partnership has ensured that no young person goes hungry and that they have the necessary clothing and equipment to access their education. Spirit Aid has given hope to our community and allowed young people to see their part in helping others affected by hardship. Spirit Aid have helped in changing the culture in our school so that young people recognise their part in the wider community and the need for them to look after each other.”

Hampden School

“Spirit Aid are wonderful supporters of the children and families of Hampden School.  Spirit Aid ensure that our children all get a wonderful Christmas gift and help support some of our most vulnerable families with Christmas Hampers.  There is no doubt that without this support families would struggle more at Christmas time. Every member of staff is hugely grateful for the wonderful donations that Spirit Aid makes, which ensures all our children and families enjoy a special Christmas.”
