CARING churchgoers in Troon tucked in for a lunch organised to help support a charity who help children and young people across Ayrshire.

On Sunday October 28, St Meddan’s Church in Troon held a lunch to support Rainbow House in Irvine.

Rainbow House is an assessment, diagnosis and treatment centre for children and young people, where there is a concern about their physical, emotional, social or learning development.

They were raising funds for their Amenity Fund which may be used to purchase toys etc and also supports an annual weekend trip to an outdoor activity centre in Keswick which is specifically designed to facilitate the needs of physically impaired children and young people.

Around 60 people attended the lunch which was held immediately after the morning service.

Those attending enjoyed a time of fellowship and heard from Anne Marie Bannatyne, one of the Community Paediatric Sisters, who spoke of their work, showed slides of the young people at Keswick and told them of the difference activities like this make to their confidence and development.

They were delighted to raise £430 to help towards their next trip.
