Blood Donation

At the turn of the year, the blood banks are usually low and poor weather can make the situation even worse. Every minute of every day, someone is receiving a blood transfusion. Just three teaspoons of blood can save the life of a premature baby. NHS Scotland and Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service were invited to relieve our congregation of a pint of juice apiece.

This was a community and interfaith event, and people from the surrounding area and offices also donated their blood. These were people of faith, and perhaps no faith. All shared a common purpose; to save lives on the grounds of humanity and compassion.

“And whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of mankind”. (Quran 5:32)

Painting and Decorating

Whenever you walk past a wall or surface area, you often don’t realise that it wasn’t always that colour. Once it gets really bad, it becomes obvious enough. Our team of volunteers polished the brass, dusted the prayer hall, painted the lobbies and corridors, redecorated the library, varnished the doors and even created new storage space. In doing so, they had to climb great heights, bend down low, and now know of nooks and crannies that very few people have laid eyes on before.
