Andrew's charity appeals reaches over £5000!

Rev Andrew Greaves
Over my 12 years representing the West End on the City Council, I have met and worked with many inspirational people in the area, but few are more inspirational and command more respect in our area than Rev Andrew Greaves, Minister of Dundee West Church.

Andrew has always been hugely supportive of community events in the West End and has led our West End Christmas Week (now Fortnight!) Concert every year.   But it is his work - and that of Vicky, his wife - with the people of Sri Lanka that has been the hallmark of what Andrew and Vicky are all about.

Andrew recently had this head shaved (by Lynn Lamont of Lynn's Barber Shop in Perth Road!) as a fundraising event for the Sri Lankan vocational training centre that he and Vicky have developed and funded through Link Exchange Overseas, as reported in the Courier last month.

Many of us have already donated to this hugely worthwhile cause.   You can help by sending donations to 'Link Overseas Exchange', Wards of Keithock, By Brechin, Angus, DD9 7PZ.  E-mail for further information : vgreaves@linkoverseas.org.uk.
