£1,000 in Christmas Card to Shelter

16th December 2009


Ayrshire Housing has made a donation of £1,000 to Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity.

Paul Torrance, the association’s chair says, “this year we decided to redirect most of our seasonal card budget to charity whilst still retaining the bespoke card that our tenants and colleagues elsewhere enjoy. Neil McGuire our designer at After the News thought that Shelter would be a good recipient given our shared concern for the homeless and a graphical connection which he could exploit in his slimmed down design. I couldn’t agree more! Shelter is doing excellent work helping both individuals and working with others to demand more resources for affordable housing in Scotland.”

Gordon MacRae, Head of External Relations, Shelter Scotland, the housing and homelessness charity, said: “We are delighted with the support of Ayrshire Housing and its donation to Shelter Scotland. The support will help us continue our work providing advice and campaigning, on behalf of those people who are homeless or living in bad housing.”
