The Glasgow branch of the Ghanaian Methodist Fellowship-UK Chaplaincy has raised money through car boot sale to support the fellowship’s charity- Go for Ghana. The Go for Ghana Charity is an initiative of GMF Glasgow and is supported by the Strathclyde Circuit of the Methodist Church. The aim of the GO for Ghana charity is to support less privileged communities in Ghana. The Charity was officially launched on 29th August 2014 by Rev Alan Anderson, Superintendent Minister of the circuit.
Various items ranging from clothes, books, toys, shoes, etc. are collected on an ongoing basis to be sent to Ghana. Currently, 30 boxes of items are collected awaiting to be will shipped to Ghana. On Saturday 8th August 201, the fellowship organised a Car Boot Sale and Fun Day to raise funds to pay for the shipping of the items collected. The car boot sale was held at the Clydebank Methodist Church.
The event being the first was well attended on a dry and sunny day in Glasgow. Folks from all over Glasgow were there to contribute their quota. Many non -Ghanaians who took part in the event enjoyed the Ghanaian dishes especially the fried yam, Kelewele and Bofrot.
The kids were also treated with face painting, bouncy castle and musical chairs.
The event was very successful and were are planning to organise another one in November.
