Child support


On behalf of Children 1st, I’d like to thank the people of Arran for their continued support for Scotland’s national children’s charity.

We’re overwhelmed by the generosity and fundraising efforts from everyone across Scotland. It’s this kindness that has allowed us to help over 8,000 children and their families this year alone.

We’d like to pay special thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery in Arran for 10 years of support through Postcode Children Trust which has enabled us to continue delivering vital support services like our advice network Parentline. In the last year, Parentline supported over 2100 parents thanks to the players, and we look to expand our presence locally in the New Year.

We’ve also been able to prevent and protect children and their families from traumatic experiences, including poverty, loss and abuse thanks to the players, as well as helping them become stronger and more resilient together.

With the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery through Postcode Children Trust, we can help build a brighter future for more children and families in Arran.


Mary Glasgow,

Children 1st
