A CHRISTIAN support charity which helps vulnerable people in the community got crafty to raise £686 to further its work.

The Kidron Project works across Inverclyde to help tackle poverty, social isolation and promote life skills, physical and mental health and wellbeing.

The group held a craft fair at Craigend Resource Centre in Greenock and were delighted with the response.

Greenock Telegraph:

Carolyn Airth, life skills development worker, said: "We held the fair to raise funds to support the the courses we run.

"It was very well attended and we are delighted with the amount we raised. It was a lovely day and wonderful to get the time to chat to some of the people."

Greenock Telegraph:

There was an amazing selection of hand-made crafts on show, plus baking, gifts, a tombola and raffle.

The busy event helped supported local crafters. After paying £10 for a table, they were able to keep whatever they made.

Greenock Telegraph:

Carolyn said: "The funds made will help us to buy materials for our courses. We run a women's art therapy course, called Peaced Together, and this will help us with craft supplies.

"We also run a Life Ready course, a five-week programme on different aspects of daily life. We do a lot of work and run a number of courses in different areas to give people all across Inverclyde an opportunity."
